Over the weekend the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma suffered a ransomware attack, bringing several systems down including online bill payment systems and city email services. Fortunately, the attack did not affect 911 or emergency services. According to BleepingComputer, websites including the City of Tulsa, the Tulsa City Council, Tulsa Police, and the Tulsa 311 websites are also down. Tulsa is now one of many cities and municipalities affected by the devastating impact of ransomware. The United States will likely start looking inward to increase resources to help local governments deal with the growing problem of ransomware against public and private entities.
