Butler County services will remain limited on Wednesday due to a ransomware attack on the county’s computer network, officials announced late Tuesday night.

All offices will be open, but services requiring the use of a computer will be limited.

“The primary goal of the county is to get limited motor vehicle, driver’s license and register of deeds operations up by the end of the day (Wednesday),” a statement released by the county said.

The Augusta Western office will remain closed, with the public being notified as soon as it is expected to reopen. Email will not be available for county staff through the end of the week, officials said.

County officials do not believe any public or private information was stolen during the cyberattack.
