CYBER CRIMINALS HIT LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT – The Wise County Sheriff’s Office continues to try to recover information lost on or around Dec. 11 when a computer virus wiped out one of the department’s 14 servers. Sheriff David Walker said the server was infected with the CryptoWall virus, which encrypted all the files on the server, including videos, photos, forms and other case materials. This type of virus is known as “ransomware” because its creators offer users a way to recover their files if they pay a ransom. Because there is no other way to recover the information, the department has made a payment, but as of Friday, had not received instructions on how to decrypt the files. Walker said his department has consulted with the FBI and Secret Service on the issue. For more details, read the full story in the Dec. 20 Wise County Messenger on newsstands now.
