Alabama State Government Websites Face Denial of Service Attack: No Data Breach Reported

Montgomery, AL – In an unwelcome turn of events, some Alabama state government websites became the target of a “denial of service” attack on Tuesday afternoon. Officials moved swiftly to address the situation and reassure the public that no breach occurred, and the state’s computers and sensitive information remained secure.

The Alabama Office of Information Technology (OIT), in collaboration with the state’s carrier, is actively engaged in efforts to mitigate the impact of the attack. The focus is on restoring normalcy to the affected websites and ensuring the resilience of the state’s online infrastructure.

While the attack did not compromise the integrity of the state’s data, it has led to temporary slowdowns on some government websites. Users may experience delays in accessing certain online services as the OIT works diligently to counteract the effects of the denial of service attack.

The Governor’s Press Office issued an update to keep the public informed about the ongoing situation, emphasizing that the incident is primarily a network issue. The proactive measures taken by the state government demonstrate a commitment to safeguarding digital assets and ensuring the continuity of essential online services.

At this time, there is no indication of any unauthorized access to sensitive information, and officials are closely monitoring the situation to prevent any potential escalation. The public is advised to stay tuned for further updates from official channels as the state works to resolve the network issue and fortify its cybersecurity measures.

In the face of this incident, the Alabama state government remains focused on maintaining transparency and keeping citizens informed about developments. As the situation unfolds, residents are encouraged to exercise patience when accessing state websites that may experience temporary delays due to the ongoing mitigation efforts.
