Criminals have shown a tendency to deploy major attacks during troublesome times. Hurricane Florence wreaked havoc in the US not that long ago. It now appears one local water utility company is being targeted in a major ransomware attack. It is a very troublesome development, for many different reasons.

The East Coast of the United States suffered quite a bit of damage courtesy of Hurricane Florence. Although the country has seen its fair share of hurricanes, cleaning up after the fact is always a problematic venture. It seems criminals know those struggles all too well and try to exploit lingering weaknesses during this most opportune time.
