Fulton County breach

A lot going on in Fulton County lately.

All this is pretty crazy. A long-running battle between the FBI and a ransomware group.

The headline doesn’t do what happened justice.

LockBit removed Fulton County’s listing from its victim shaming website this morning, claiming the county had paid. But county officials said they did not pay, nor did anyone make payment on their behalf. Security experts say LockBit was likely bluffing and probably lost most of the data when the gang’s servers were seized this month by U.S. and U.K. law enforcement.
