16 Senators and Staff In Pennsylvania Locked Out Of Their Systems By Ransomware

Ker-Splat!

This happened to the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Caucus on Friday and the website is still down as of the time of this post on Monday morning. This can’t be a fun day over there. As of Friday, Pennsylvania Democrats spokeswoman Stacey Witalec said, “At this point we are working with Microsoft to see where we’re at.”

Odds are, it was a phishing email some poor unsuspecting staffer clicked on. This is a good time to take them from unsuspecting, to a healthy level of paranoia by training them about the threat.
