Texas is the latest state to be hit with a cyber attack, with state officials confirming that computer systems in 22 municipalities have been infiltrated by hackers demanding a ransom. Threat intelligence analyst Allan Liska reportedly stated, “It absolutely is the largest coordinated attack we’ve seen.” Over the last year alone, cities such as Atlanta, GA; Albany, NY; Baltimore, MD; Riviera Beach, FL, have been victims of ransomware.
