What a Cyber Attack in a Prison Can be Like

Charlie Osborne on ZDNet writes about what a cyber attack in a prison can be like.

“Inmates (in a New Mexico prison) were made to stay in their cells as the ransomware outbreak reportedly not only knocked out the establishment’s internet but also locked staff out of data management servers and security camera networks.

“The incident came to light in court documents, with one public defender representing the inmates suggesting that their constitutional rights were violated due to the sudden lockdown, which also meant that visitations were canceled.

“Concerns were also raised surrounding the lack of internet access, with inmates left with only payphones to communicate with court representatives.”
