In an unusual move, hackers decided to launch a ransomware attack on the law enforcement agency of Austin, Texas on Tuesday night.
There were no reports of emails being hacked, and the agency refused to blame the hack on known hackers. Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said that a hacker was able to access a website of the AUSTIN POLICE DEPARTMENT after 7 p.m.
“The hacker was able to view social media contact information, email addresses and phone numbers associated with the public, as well as some photos and video of K-9's and other department activities,” the Austin American-Statesman reported.

West, a French cybercriminals group that has, in the past, launched attacks against the French government and businesses, took credit for the attack. But, this time, the group said it was a cyberattack by “a foreign adversary” that targeted the city’s website.
“In response to recent events affecting law enforcement agencies and their communities, we have decided to send a message,” West said in a statement on its official website.
Acevedo said that the hackers would have been able to access more sensitive information on the department’s site if they had wanted, but they would not have been able to compromise anyone’s personal information.
