WEST CHESTER (March 9) – State Senator Andy Dinniman’s offices remain open for business despite a ransomware cyber attack that has impacted computers in Senate Democratic offices across Pennsylvania.
“These types of attacks continue to be a serious threat to businesses, individuals, and government institutions.

“Our website is up and my hope is that the remaining computer issues will be resolved very soon and that this will be a short-term inconvenience,” Dinniman said. “But nothing is stopping us from continuing to serve and represent our constituents.”
