Florida has been become a target for two serious ransomware attacks. The city of Pensacola reported a cyber incident that reportedly started Saturday morning. The city disconnected much of the city’s network, and affected some payments and other service. The operators behind the Maze Ransomware have claimed responsibility for this attack. Prison Rehabilitative Industries and Diversified Enterprises Inc (PRIDE) in Florida was also targeted with ransomware on the same day. PRIDE is a non-profit that helps inmates transition to a life outside of prison. There are no indications that the two attacks are linked to each-other.
