    "PALM SPRINGS, Fla. — Riviera Beach isn't the only local municipality paying ransom to cyber hackers. The Village of Palm Springs said it too was hit by hackers.

    Palm Springs Village Manager Rich Reade said the cyber attack happened more than a year ago. According to Reade, malware called 'Amnesia 3' got into their system through a phishing email and locked them out of their files...

    Reade said they sent about $1,200 worth of bitcoin to the hackers, before working with an outside IT firm to get their files back.

    The IT firm cost about $70,000, but Reade said they are now much better prepared for any future attack..."

    "...Florida League of Cities, which facilitates cybersecurity coverage through an insurance carrier for Lake City and hundreds of other cities, helped decide to pay the ransom. A cybersecurity firm helped analyze the attack and dealt with paying off the attackers, according to Eric Hartwell, deputy general counsel and insurance counsel at the league. Lake City only has to pay a $10,000 deductible [of the $500,000 ransom paid]..."
