Wisconsin County Dealing With Ransomware Attack on Public Health Department
Rock County, Wisconsin, experienced a ransomware attack on September 29, targeting its public health department. The attack forced officials to take some systems offline. The Cuba ransomware gang claimed responsibility for the attack, stating that they stole financial documents, tax information, and more. There are suspicions that the gang may be connected to the Russian state, as they have targeted government systems in Ukraine and Montenegro. This incident is part of a series of cyberattacks on municipalities in Wisconsin over the past year. The county is working to restore its systems and minimize disruption to public services.
