New Orleans declares state of emergency following ransomware attack

This post was originally published on this site

New Orleans declared a state of emergency and shut down its computers after a cyber security event, the latest in a string of city and state governments to be attacked by hackers.

Suspicious activity was spotted around 5 a.m. Friday morning. By 8 a.m., there was an uptick in that activity, which included evidence of phishing attempts and ransomware, Kim LaGrue, the city’s head of IT said in a press conference. Once the city confirmed it was under attack, servers and computers were shut down.

While ransomware was detected there are no requests made to the city of New Orleans at this time, but that is very much a part of our investigation, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said during a press conference.

Numerous local and state governments have been plagued by ransomware, a file-encrypting malware that demands money for the decryption key. Pensacola, Florida and Jackson County, Georgia are just a few examples of the near-constant stream of ransomeware attacks over the past year. Louisiana state government was attacked in November, prompting officials to deactivate government websites and other digital services and causing the governor to declare a state of emergency. It was the state’s second declaration related to a ransomware attack in less than six months.

Governments and local authorities are particularly vulnerable as they’re often underfunded and unresourced, and unable to protect their systems from some of the major threats.

New Orleans, it appears was somewhat prepared, which officials said was the result of training and its ability to operate without internet. The investigation is in its early stages, but for now it appears that city employees didn’t interact with or provide credentials or any information to possible attackers, according to officials.

“If there is a positive about being a city that has been touched by disasters and essentially been brought down to zero in the past, is that our plans and activity from a public safety perspective reflect the fact that we can operate with internet, without city networking,” said Collin Arnold, director of Homeland Security, adding that they’ve gone back to pen and paper for now.

Police, fire and EMS are prepared to work outside of the city’s internet network. Emergency communications are not affected by the cybersecurity incident, according to city officials. However, other services such as scheduling building inspections are being handled manually.

New Orleans’s Real-Time Crime Center does work off the city network, however the cameras throughout the city record independently, so right now all of those cameras are still recording regardless of connectivity to the city’s network, Arnold added. 

Federal, state and local officials are now involved in an investigation into the security incident.

Willie Nelson, Nathanial Rateliff team up for cannabis line

Singer-songwriter Willie Nelson and Denver’s own Nathaniel Rateliff have teamed up to promote a new line of cannabis products ahead of Rateliff’s annual holiday concerts, cannabis PR agency Grasslands said this week. The new strain of cannabis flower is part of Willie’s Reserve: The Nightstache Collection, which also includes a vaping cartridge that launched in August just before Rateliff’s annual Red Rocks concerts. The strain is “hand-selected from local grower AJ’s Craft Cannabis,” according to Grasslands, and was made available starting Dec. 11 to promote Rateliff and his band The Night Sweats’ Dec. 13-14 concerts at Mission Ballroom. williesreserve.com

MCA goes full-spectrum

The Museum on Contemporary Art Denver on Tuesday unveiled new glasses for colorblind visitors that correct their vision to show the full spectrum of the rainbow. The partnership with EnChroma, which manufactures the specialized spectacles, makes MCA the first Colorado museum to offer the glasses. “It was honestly a very emotional experience for the four people who tried the glasses on,” MCA spokeswoman Courtney Law wrote via email. “Our first visitors in the door (on Tuesday) were a gentleman and his father, in his late 70s, who had never experienced the full color spectrum before.” According to MCA, colorblindness affects about 350 million people worldwide, with more men (one in 12, or 8%) than women (one in 200 women, or 0.5%). The glasses are free for visitors to use while perusing the museum. mcadenver.org

Evans School open to artists, events

The historic Evans School, at 1115 Acoma St. in the Golden Triangle, is now available for rental to artists and event planners, its new owners said this week. That’s a stark contrast to the preceding 40-plus years, which found the 115-year-old building sitting vacant. The roughly 48,000-square-foot building, which sits on the National Register of Historic Places, is licensed to operate as office space, The Denver Post has reported. But its new owners are courting arts and culture events as well. “Thirty rooms totaling 50,000 square feet are available immediately,” City Street Investors said in a press statement this week, “and an auditorium seating more than 100 are ready for conferences, performances, and other meetings and special events” Short-term leases will be available throughout the long-term planning process that begins next year. citystreetinvestors.com
