Jefferson County, KY | Forward Air | Huntsville City School, Ala – All hit by Ransomware

Jefferson County, KY
Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) — The Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator’s office has been hit by a ransomware attack, in which hackers are holding the agency’s data hostage for payment, PVA Colleen Younger said in an interview Monday.

Younger told WDRB that the agency learned of the attack on Wednesday and had closed its office — where title researchers and members of the public can look up real estate data — until Dec. 28. 

“Our systems were all down and data was not accessible,” Younger said.


Forward Air Corp
Forward Air Corp. (NASDAQ:FWRD) was targeted by a ransomware attack last week and warned that it may defer or lose revenue as a result, the Tennessee-based trucking and logistics firm disclosed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday. 

“Although the company is actively managing this incident, it has caused and may continue to cause a delay in parts of the company’s business and may result in a deferral or loss of revenue as well as incremental costs that may adversely impact the Company’s financial results,” Forward Air said in the filing. 

Huntsville City Schools
Huntsville City Schools announced Monday it is possible that Social Security numbers and email addresses could be part of the information that was accessed during a Nov. 29 ransomware attack on the district.
