Hackers demand ransom from Buffalo, Syracuse and Yonkers for computer database breach
Buffalo demanded to pay $ 3.5 million … paid 8 weeks ago
Syracuse * demanded to pay $ 4 millionâ¦ paid 4 weeks ago
* CORRECTED ERROR – The entry that is marked with an asterisk next to Syracuse was originally and mistakenly listed as Rochester inadvertently. Rochester suffered no ransomeware attacks despite the initial mention of Rochester. It has been corrected to show Syracuse. it was a big mistake on my part.
No attack took place and no payment was made.
My sincere apologies. / s / Hezi Aris, editor of Yonkers Tribune

Yonkers demanded to pay $ 10 millionâ¦ No payment madeâ¦ It turned out to be unnecessary
YONKERS, NY – September 12, 2021 – A person from Yonkers with a proven track record happily advised the Yonkers Tribune Two days ago, the city of Yonkers suffered a computer incursion by hackers demanding a ransom in the order of $ 10 million to resuscitate the disparate modules that cover the various departments of the city.
The problem was corroborated by a multiplicity of services when IT systems were immobilized and / or frozen.
The saving grace is that the various modules of the system are being resurrected, but there has been no way for it. Yonkers Tribune to check when all modules will be up and running.
Take out is pretty straightforward. The Town of Yonkers must allocate funds for a state-of-the-art computer system capable of dealing with future attempts to undermine the ability of the Town of Yonkers to function.
The Yonkers Tribune has been made aware of the circumstances which have plagued the computer systems in Buffalo, Rochester and Yonkers to one extent or another although there have been no reports from any of these cities except the Yonkers Tribunethat is to say.
It should be noted and celebrated that the oversight of Bob Cacace as Information Technology Commissioner for the City of Yonkers and his department’s oversight of this potentially catastrophic event has been thwarted.
Yonkers Tribune has learned that the process of resuscitating the Yonkers department to a functioning capacity is underway. How long the process will take is unknown.
