HUBER HEIGHTS — The city of Huber Heights is providing an update for residents after the city was subject to a ransomware attack on Nov. 12.
According to a press release from the city of Huber Heights, it “is committed to providing updates to residents in an effort to provide transparency around the ransomware attack that took place on Nov. 12, 2023.
The Huber Heights Income Tax Division is back up and running. The city’s payroll was processed successfully last week, for the week Nov. 19-25.
The information technology (I.T.) division is currently working with the water (utility) division billing and payment system and will hopefully be completely operational by the end of Nov. 27.

Division will be wiping and restoring every city device that was on the network,” said the release. “The forensics team is still diligently reviewing what data was breached. This is a very time intensive process. Once we know more, anyone that has been found to be impacted will be notified. The city is also still working on what that plan for notifications will look like.”
