Another cyber-attack took down a government website. An attack orchestrated by a “foreign actor” took down Colorado’s main government website yesterday.   

Colorado.gov went offline yesterday afternoon. All other state websites and services were still available.   

It is unclear if the suspect is asking for ransom to bring services back up.   

The state’s office of information technology and the State Emergency Operations Center is actively working with state and federal partners to restore access to the Colorado.gov page.   

Last month, the Fremont County system was attacked with BlackCat ransomware.
