SACRAMENTO — The website of the Sacramento Regional Transit District was taken offline after falling victim to an apparent “cyber ransom attack” Monday.
The SacRT say that this attack on their network was an attempt to extort money from their operations. Officials said very little damage was done and no data was compromised.
SacRT technicians are searching the network for any malware or suspicious activity, and are hoping to restore the website as soon services are deemed “safe” again.
At this time, there will be no access to online accounts, credit card transactions, or schedule information on the website. However, light rail and bus operations will continue to function as normal.
