LAKE CITY, Fla. (WCJB) -- Lake City officials have confirmed their phone lines are back and they anticipate their email system to be operational tomorrow.

That's after a cyber attack earlier this week crippled their phones, emails, and servers.

The city's IT vendor is going through their servers one by one to secure their network from future attacks.

The FBI and the FDLE are helping the Lake City police department in their criminal investigation. Lake City was targeted by a malware attack. The ransomware, known as "Triple Threat," combines three methods of attack to targetted systems.
