Cyberattack Hits City of Pensacola

Calling attention to your jurisdiction — might not be a good thing.

I noted that the city of Pensacola has been dealing with a cyberattack since Friday evening, see Cyber attack hits City of Pensacola.

Now it could be total coincidence, but they are also the last location in the news for a mass shooting at the Pensacola Naval Air Station.

Note to self — in today's world, when criminal organizations, or others, are figuring out which city to attack, being in the news could be a detriment. Or, somehow, it could be connected to the mass shooting in some manner.
