Yonkers Demanded to Pay back $10 Million … No Payment Produced … Proven to Be Needless
YONKERS, NY — September 12, 2021 — A Yonkers specific with demonstrated information luckily encouraged the Yonkers Tribune two times back that the Town of Yonkers had experienced a computer system incursion by hackers who demanded ransom to the tune of $10 million to resuscitate the disparate modules that overlay the distinct departments of the city.
The difficulty was corroborated from a multiplicity of departments when personal computer units were immobilized and/or frozen.
The conserving grace is that the system’s different modules are in the process of staying resurrected but there has been no way for the Yonkers Tribune to confirm when all the modules will be up and operating.
The takeaway is very easy. The City of Yonkers should allocate funding for a point out of the art laptop or computer technique that can contend with long run makes an attempt to undermine the potential of the City of Yonkers to function.
The Yonkers Tribune has been manufactured mindful of the instances that undermined laptop programs in Buffalo, Rochester, and Yonkers to some extent or an additional even with there owning been not 1 report from any of these towns, except for the Yonkers Tribune’s telling.
It need to be noted and celebrated that Bob Cacace’s oversight as Commissioner of Information Technologies for the Metropolis of Yonkers and his department’s oversight of this perhaps calamitous prevalence has been thwarted.
Yonkers Tribune has acquired that the approach of resuscitating Yonkers section to working potential is undergoing. How long the approach will just take is mysterious.
