The city of Oakland in California is still dealing with the aftermath of a ransomware attack that has affected its computer systems.
While the city hopes to have its systems fully functional by next month, the attack has caused significant disruption to some police services and employee data going back 12 years has been compromised.
The FBI and Oakland Police Department are investigating the incident.
The city’s mayor, Shang Tao, has assured residents that anyone whose data may have been compromised will be offered one free year of credit monitoring.
The situation is being closely monitored and the city’s IT team is working hard to restore normalcy.
