Victim: Limestone Water and Sewer District
The facility was using a Windows 7 computer which was well past its end of life date and was due to be replaced anyway, said Limestone Water and Sewer District Superintendent Jim Leighton.

“We said enough of that, it’s not worth paying a ransom for,” Leighton said. “We had to update it anyway.”
