US state Ohio declares cyberattack emergency

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell declared a state of emergency Friday after the city was hit by a cyberattack. Phishing attempts and suspicious activity were detected on the city’s network around 5:00 am. By 11:00 am, technician investigators detected “a cybersecurity incident” and the city’s information technology department began powering down servers and city computers as a precaution, the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness said in a series of tweets.

While ransomware was detected, no ransom has been demanded in the cyberattack, Cantrell said. In July, several school systems in Louisiana were attacked by malware, prompting the governor to issue a state of emergency.
