BREAKING: Henry County cyberattack

Henry County servers suffered a cyberattack July 17.

McDONOUGH — Henry County is under cyberattack.

"At this time there is no access to public records including court documents, building permits, zoning permits, property tax information or business licenses," the county said in a Facebook post. "At this time county e-mail, internet access and county servers have been taken down by Henry County Technical services in a proactive measure to safeguard county government information and networks."

The Henry County Technology Services Department, Georgia Technology Authority and FBI are working on the issue, and backup server testing is underway.

Public Safety was not affected. Vehicle registrations are processed on the state system, so the Tax and Tag Office is operating as usual.

"We ask for the public’s patience as we work to mitigate the issue," the notice said, adding that people can call the Henry County information line at (770) 288-7893 for more information.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.
