North Carolina's largest metro area was discovering just how hard it is to
conduct business without county computers that handle numerous transactions
on Thursday, a day after local leaders refused to pay hackers who froze
their system.

Mecklenburg County computer systems that collect property taxes, handle
building permits and process jail inmates were out of commission while
technology workers made digital repairs with backed-up data. Officials say
the fixes will take days.

County officials were also taking new precautions against fraudulent emails
because hackers have launched a new attack in response to their refusal to
pay ransom. No further damage to the system was reported.
