Hackers Behind Modesto PD Attack Begin Releasing Data

Government Technology

(TNS) — The ransomware group that claims to have stolen data from the Modesto Police Department's IT network has started making the information available on its website.

A threat analyst with the cybersecurity firm Emsisoft reported the development Wednesday on Twitter.

"Generally speaking, (cyber criminals) only release the data if they are not paid," said Brett Callow, the analyst, in a phone interview. "And I would say if the city hasn't paid them, it is absolutely the right decision."
