* The Onondaga County library computer system was disabled last week by the same ransomware as the Syracuse school district, but thus far the county has not received a ransom demand, officials said today.
* The library system’s computer network was disabled July 12 by Ryuk ransomware, the same malware that crippled the school district system three days before, according to Justin Sayles of the county executive’s office.
