Roxana Police Department is done cleaning up after ransomware attacks

I swear, small town police departments can’t wait to get hit by ransomware. I keep seeing it over and over again. In this case, “the work of sophisticated hackers who seek out vulnerabilities in digital networks, enter computer systems and encrypt important data…” (a.k.a. a piece of malware sent in a phishing email) was inconvenient rather than crippling. Based on the article and the lack of desire to share any info, along with the sensationalizing of the attack above, I’d say they are pretty embarrassed about it.
