First we're hearing about it, though we noticed a lot of anti-virus stuff running in the stations lately. This probably explains it:
- Just curious why there is no talk of the massive computer hack of department computers that's going on 4 days now. Direct from the brains at 35th Street, nearly a quarter of computers are infected with a virus that routes all information to a remote server in Amsterdam, and from there no one knows. The Department can't get a handle on it, and won't tell anyone if their personal info stored in the finance division has been compromised. If this were the private sector, the best and brightest would be hired to fix it in a day. The 3RD largest police department with a treasure trove of personal information on anyone from cops to felons can't get it fixed after several days. Good to know both how secure our servers are and how much the department cares.
Hey FOP? Hey PBPA? Has everyone's info been compromised? Hey City of Chicago? Are we going to be getting some half-assed letters about "free credit reports" coming our way because you can't be bothered to actually run a secure network?
