Circleville Court, USA got Cyber Attack by Lockbit Ransomware

The City of Circleville court website has been down for more than 24 hours during the incident. A statement from Judge Peters said, the Circleville Municipal Court IT Department identified an issue related to a potential ransomware attack. In order to minimize any risk to the Court, users, and the public, systems were taken offline. As a result, the Court is unable to accept online or telephone payments for fines and costs, until further notice. The Court will not be taking action at this for non-payment or late payment. The IT Department is working diligently to restore all systems, including the website. Please contact the Clerk of Court at (740) 474-3171 with any questions.”
