Clark County Water Reclamation District hit with cyberattack, possibly ransomware
Clark County Water Reclamation District got hit with possible ransomware attack.
Cybercriminals Friday launched an attack against the Clark County Water Reclamation District in Las Vegas.
Flynn told KSNV Monday that district staff shut down numerous computers as a precautionary measure while assessing the situation.
Customer and employee information were not affected by the situation and district plant operations at all seven treatment facilities and customer service centers are functioning without interruptions, Flynn told the station.
The water reclamation district reportedly isn't covered by the county's cyber extortion policy and it is unclear if it has its own policy. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been asked to investigate the incident. No further details have been released.
