The LockBit ransomware group has leaked data it stole from Washington County Sheriff’s Office in northeastern Florida. The Record did not view the stolen data but cybersecurity experts said it included warrants and information on employees. Washington County has more than 25,000 residents and is about 45 minutes away from Panama City, Florida. A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office confirmed that they were hit with ransomware and said it “recovered” from the incident about two weeks ago. “We believe the attack originated in Russia. We aren’t absolutely sure but we believe it to be,” Sheriff Kevin Crews said. “We are grateful our communication lines never went down. We never lost our phone lines and were able to continue to serve our community in that arena.” The department’s app was offline from February 21 until early March due to the attack, which took down their finance system and jail networks. They hired a private IT company to help with the recovery effort.
