NEW JERSEY (WUNF) — UNF News has received information that recently three local governments in New Jersey were attacked by cyber criminals.

The attack involved an e-mail that looked legitimate allegedly from a package delivery company saying that a package could not be delivered and to click on a link.

The link then installed ransomware that froze the computer system until a ransom was paid.

No other information is available at this time –check back for continuing updates
