Cyber ​​attack: Anhalt-Bitterfeld continues on the ground after a hacker attack

Koethen – The social benefits are flowing, now the normalization of the vehicle registration system is being worked on! The latest news from the district administration sounds more like perseverance than real hope for a quick end to the cyber crisis.

Since strangers hijacked the Anhalt-Bitterfeld network on July 6th, allegedly through a security hole in the printer software, there has apparently been no real progress. An alternative network allows e-mail contacts to some of the 900 employees again. But the actual IT infrastructure is still slumbering.

LKA and external experts are now getting reinforcements. District spokesman Udo Pawelczyk said on Thursday: “The district has received further technical support to cope with the upcoming tasks.

A team of specialists from the Federal Office for Information Security arrived on site today and is now providing support in determining the damage and restoring it. “
