Pensacola Hit with Ransomware Attack | Avast

The city of Pensacola, Fla. is recovering from a ransomware attack by the Maze group, which shut down the city the day after a shooting at its Naval Air Station. Maze, which has launched other recent U.S. ransomware attacks, told Bleeping Computer the attack was not related to the shooting, which is being investigated by the FBI as possible terrorism. “We did not know about this,” Bleeping Computer reportedMaze as saying. “It is just coincidence.”
