City of Baltimore Ransomware Attack Affects Home Sales, Payments and More

More than week after a cyber attack attack left many city government IT systems down, city officials said Wednesday that they’re continuing to work to bring systems back online.

“I can tell you confidently … we will be back online and we will be back online more safely and securely than we were before,” said City of Baltimore Chief Information Officer Frank Johnson, adding that a team involving city employees and others is working “around the clock” to restore the systems. What’s not clear, however, is when the systems will be back up and running.

“I know that everybody wants to know when and what will be back online. Anybody that’s in this business will tell you that as you learn more, those plans will change by the minute. They are incredibly fluid,” Johnson said.
