Default Hacker Holding NC County Servers For Ransom

CHARLOTTE, NC - Servers at Mecklenburg County offices are being held for ransom by an unknown hacker, according to officials.

The county was experiencing a county-wide computer system outage Tuesday afternoon. Just after 6 p.m., officials said during a meeting that the servers were being held for ransom.

Officials confirmed to CBS Affiliate WBTV that the hacker is asking for $23,000 dollars by 1 p.m. Wednesday. The county is reportedly considering whether to pay the hacker.

Oh my....this is going to change some things. I wonder if this equates to some kind of kidnapping?

When this happened where I used to work, the company said no way. We restored everything from backup, which took about a day, and we were OK. The system got fouled up by an employee who opened a suspicious email.
