Dallas ransomware attack has been more severe than ever

More than 26,000 people were affected by the incident of the Dallas ransomware attack, and their names, addresses, social security numbers, and medical information were stolen. After the city submitted a report to the Texas Attorney General’s office, which was made public and described the depth of the attack, the extent of the breach was first publicized locally.

The city claimed that only a small amount of personal information had been compromised following the Dallas ransomware attack in May by the middle of June, but we now know that it was much more extensive. Although the city claims it has refrained from commenting on the incident due to the ongoing criminal investigation, officials are under pressure to provide additional details.

There will be an update about the Dallas ransomware attack on September 6th, according to the Dallas city manager’s office.

Taxpayers: Dallas ransomware attack has exceeded $8.5 million

Now that we know, the taxpayers’ total outlay for the Dallas ransomware attack has exceeded $8.5 million.
Members of the Dallas City Council agreed to cover the costs on Wednesday, but they also questioned whether the 27,000 victims who have been identified so far need more than two years of credit monitoring.

Dallas is disclosing how many people’s sensitive information was compromised more than three months after it first discovered the Dallas ransomware attack on its network. There was still a statement from the city 16 days after the incident that “there is no evidence or indication that data has been compromised.”
