Stone Mountain Park Association of Georgia Corrupted with Ransomware
What do the City of Atlanta, Jackson County, and the Stone Mountain Park Association have in common? They have all been the victim of ransomware. The City of Atlanta spent millions recovering from the cyber attack that corrupted city networks. Then, last month Jackson County paid the hackers almost half a million dollars to restore their networks. Now, Stone Mountain Park Association is working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Georgia Technology Authority to recover their encrypted files.
So far, it appears no personal data or payment information has been compromised as a result of the attack. The park is also still running as it should, as only internal networks appear to be impacted.
