 Linn County public services are back online after a ransomware attack was identified Jan. 24, according to Administrative Officer Darrin Lane.

Lane said that the Clerk’s Office is again able to record documents, one of the more significant issues affecting the general public.

County IT staff members have worked extended hours to restore critical systems including servers and individual computers.

“We are recovering, providing services and making significant progress,” Lane said.

About 6 a.m. Jan. 24, county staff learned that some computers were being encrypted and immediately shut down servers and computer systems.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office and Health Department were not affected.

Linn County Circuit Court is not connected to the county computer systems and was able to conduct business as usual.
