* It’s deja vu for Lincoln County officials after they experienced their second ransomware attack in as many weeks.
* The first attack happened on July 26. Authorities said hackers held hostage the sheriff’s office’s computers and website.
* The second strike took place Tuesday night and crippled Lincoln County Communications. At this point, Lincoln County is not aware of any ransom requests made by the hacker.
