A new cyber attack partially paralyzes the activity of public institutions. A few days after two hospitals, in Dax (Landes) and Villefranche-sur-Saône (Rhône), were victims of computer attacks, the City and the Agglomeration of Chalon-sur-Saône (Saône-et-Loire) have in turn suffered computer hacking.
Hospitals, easy targets in the face of cyberattacks
“The National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (Anssi) was seized of this cyberattack so that our communities are supported” in its management, said Sunday the community of Grand Chalon on Facebook.
“Digital links with the services of our communities are currently unavailable. The websites of the City and the Agglomeration remain accessible but, at this stage, the online service forms cannot be processed given the cyberattack. The telephone links with the services are functioning. “

“We are still in the analysis of the scale of the attack and there is no ransom demand to our knowledge. But we remain cautious ”, said a spokesperson for the community.
