Lebanon County’s computer systems have remained offline over the weekend and into today following Friday’s news that the network may have been compromised by a computer virus.
The decision to take the network offline was made earlier out of “an abundance of caution,” according to County Administrator Jamie Wolgemuth in the statement made Friday.
Wolgemuth told LebTown today that the County is not completely disconnected at this point, with some systems (like email) available but only through web interfaces.
Regarding the question of whether Wolgemuth would characterize the potentially comprised network as having been affected by a “virus,” he said that the preferred labeling at this point was “cyber incident.”
There is no timeline at present for resolving the issue, and Wolgemuth said the County was not disclosing a timeline or response details at this time.
The County requests that people be patient, but Wolgemuth noted that the County would be able to help the public resolve any pressing issues (just perhaps not using computerized systems).
