Washington State Department of Transportation Working To Recover From Cyberattack

The State Department of Transportation in Washington is recovering from a cyberattack that has affected its website, cameras, and maps app. The incident, which began on Tuesday, disrupted travel-related information such as traffic closures, ferry schedules, and mountain pass reports. While some parts of the website have been restored, certain pages and services remain offline. The cause of the attack is under investigation, and it is unclear if it was a ransomware incident. This is not the first time Washington has experienced cyber outages, with previous attacks impacting healthcare systems and the Department of Licensing.
