TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Officials of an Indiana county say they are trying to determine the extent of a malware attack on the county's computers.
Vigo County Commissioner Judith Anderson says commissioners were informed of a "ransomware" attack early Tuesday.
Information technology department director Jeremy Snowden says he is not completely sure what virus was used in the attack, adding the county has not received a request for money. He also says it isn't known if vital information has been compromised.
Commissioner Brad Anderson says the county is working with a computer security provider to investigate the extent of the attack.
LaPorte County in northwest Indiana was the target of a ransomware attack earlier this month, paying $132,000 to regain control of its computers.
