West Virginia state employees are being warned to not open suspicious emails following a malware attack that infected more than 1,100 government computers.
Office of Technology spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown said the Oct. 24 malware virus affected numerous state agencies, along with organizations across the world.
She says the malware attack was caused by a mass email sent to addresses ending with “wv.gov.” Most state workers didn’t open the email.
Holley-Brown says nearly all of the infected computers have been cleaned.
