Ransomware attack believed to be behind Fulton County cybersecurity incident, officials say

Atlanta News First

ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A ransomware attack is believed to be behind a “cybersecurity incident” that left several Fulton County government services unavailable for weeks, according to officials.

“This is a serious matter and it will take time to resolve,” said Robb Pitts, Fulton County Board of Commissioners Chairman.

On Wednesday, Fulton County leaders gave their first public update since Feb. 5 on a cyber attack against the county.

The incident, first reported on Jan. 28, has impacted most of the county’s services, including processing and operations at the county courts and jail.
