The cyber-attack that shut down the computers of PA Senate Democrats for days is lasting longer than expected

Senate Democratic leader Jay Costa said the situation is more complex than originally thought, and it’s not clear when it will be resolved.

The FBI is investigating and Microsoft is working to figure out how the network was penetrated and rebuild it.

Costa isn’t discussing the nature of the ransom demand, but has said Democrats aren’t willing to pay it. 

Microsoft is providing laptops to restore access to email, but data and documents are still inaccessible.
