Court officials reported Thursday that hackers had targeted the computer network of the Wisconsin court system.
Court officials released a statement saying that a hack started early this week. Network users might have encountered patchy service or slower-than-usual response times from online services, according to court officials. When asked explicitly when the attack started and whether it was still going on, courts spokesman Tom Sheehan said in an email that he was unaware of any new information.
The message implied that the attack was still going on Thursday afternoon by advising lawyers or self-represented litigants who might have trouble electronically filing documents to get in touch with the clerk of court in their particular counties.
In this attack, no data was compromised as a result of the incident, and court business is proceeding normally across the state.
The major issue caused by the cyberattack was poor service or longer than usual response times.
