Dallas County officials reported Tuesday on their defense against a cyber attack

Dallas County

Dallas County officials said Tuesday that a cyber attack they now confirm was detected on October 19 has been contained with no closure of services.

However, concerns remain about protecting the personal information of employees and evidence for court cases.

The Tax Office at Dallas County’s Records Building and every other county function operated normally, officials said.

Computer networks were online for public access. A hacker group claims in an online post that it accessed data and plans to post it on Saturday.

“We have no idea whether what they say is true or not,” County Commissioner John Wiley Price said.
