Madison County computer servers compromised by ransomware

Ransomware rendered Madison County's systems inaccessible, according to Indiana State Police Capt. Dave Bursten.

MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (WTHR) - Madison County's computer servers have been compromised by a cyber attack.

Ransomware rendered their systems inaccessible, according to Indiana State Police Capt. Dave Bursten.

Capt. Bursten emphasized to WTHR.com the attack has not endangered public safety. If you call for an ambulance or police officer, they will respond.

"It's like when I came on in the 80s - we're doing everything with pencil and paper," he explained.

Voting data also was not been compromised. That is all housed on a separate system. No one's voter information has been compromised, nor has anyone's early vote been lost, nor are there expected to be any obstacles to casting your ballot in the future.
