Fire brigade can turn out

The internal systems have been affected and are working to a limited extent, even e-mail cannot be used. The information that the fire brigade needs for a turnout is available. The reporting systems P2000 and C2000 also work normally.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware or ransomware encrypts the files on someone’s computer, often rendering them completely useless. Victims cannot access their files until they pay a ransom (‘ransom’). This form of malware can hijack files or entire systems.

With specialists from, among others, the National Cyber ​​Security Center (NCSC) and the police, it is investigated whether the attackers have gained access to data and what the consequences are. “We are doing everything we can to ensure that all systems can work safely again as soon as possible. How long this will take is currently impossible to say”, says VNOG.
