Detroit City Database Hacked

14

 

Mike Duggan, the Mayor of Detroit made an announcement during a speech at North American International Cyber Summit that was being hosted in Michigan by saying that the entire Detroit data base was hacked and encrypted via a malware.  Hello Detroit

The hackers demanded eight hundred thousand dollars (USD) plus in order to decrypt them. Since the files are of no good use to the city the ransom was not paid. However, they asked for the ransom in terms of Bitcoin – digital encrypted currency – it is currently worth three hundred and twenty eight USD. At the time of their demand, 2000 bitcoins were equaling $803,500.

Furthermore, he said that it was a good sign for us and a warning that we need to secure our systems more and we need to think ahead of the culprit. But Mayor did not specify as to how the Detroit data base was hacked. Was it an organized hack fest or was it simply a program or a Ransomware planted in to the database.

  1. So, they held a bankrupt city’s database ransom for money? Stay classy. Been a long time since I was on the opposite side of hackers. Seriously nauseating.

  2. Would be nice to see the documents! Detroit Bankruptcy is the BIGGEST FRAUD! Dying to see those Ficano cover up emails. Kym Worthy being paid off. Benny Napoleon paid loser. Warren Evans, his corruption as Chief and now too!

    Current and previous Detroit Mayors partnership with Dan Gilbert, aka Jewish Mafia, who OWNS Snyder and Billy.

    Let’s see the docs!

  4. If this is possible can I talk with on of the representatives or whatever of Anonymous???A person or one of the hackers idk someone who knows most about Anonymous??? If you want or have the time that will be great thank you.

  5. Seems like a wasted effort. The old mayor & city council has already raped the city of it’s money and resources. The few people left here are trying to rebuild the village after a tsunami of urban blight.
