DC Cyber Attack

Original Story: http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/DC-Police-Camera-Network-Hit-With-Cyberattack-412108243.html

Shortly before President Trump’s Inauguration, a closed circuit camera network was hacked by an unknown source.  There are a large variety of possible motives but since the source of the hacking is unknown police won’t know why their Camera’s were hacked until they find out who committed the crime. The police will likely secure their camera network so that a similar attack cannot occur again. They will also continue to investigate so that they can discover who caused the hack and why they wanted to break in. The timing likely had something to do with it. Thankfully security measures were already in place so that the cameras were in a closed circuit and no other DC systems were affected.
