PRESS RELEASE - IT Recovery Efforts Are Ongoing


IT recovery efforts are ongoing, and the County has seen a significant increase in network stability. All forms of communications are currently in the process of being restored. Because some services are still being handled manually, we urge citizens who need to access County services to do so in person so that we are able to provide the best service. 

During the preliminary recovery phase, dedicated IT professionals discovered a method allowing encrypted ransomware data to be transferred off of the County servers. As a result, IT is preparing to re-install applications on those servers and return them to working order. Additionally, discussions regarding software and server support licensing agreements are in their final stages. 

With a special emphasis on the County’s mandated services (including the County Clerk, District Attorney and Sheriff’s Office), we have begun to distribute devices back to the hands of County employees and are hard at work restoring the full functionality of our email system. As part of our effort to maintain a strong and secure system once restoration is complete, an alternative antivirus solution has been implemented on County technology systems.  

Due to the severity and impact of the ransomware attack on the County and its effect on Curry County citizens, the Board of Commissioners has committed all remaining unallocated ARP funds towards addressing this cyber catastrophe. The goal of this effort is to bring essential services back to working order, and rebuild our technological infrastructure better than before, with a focus on security and efficiency for all.

Our emergency operations center is still active and continues to coordinate with numerous mutual aid resources from other Oregon counties as well as national disaster non-profit volunteers. For any questions, please contact (541) 247-3296

Press Release - Update on Service Disruptions

Gold Beach, Oregon

On Wednesday, April 26, 2023, Curry County offices began to experience difficulty accessing internal documents.  IT was called and responded on-site immediately.  We determined that the Curry County server network was generally inaccessible. All County departments are affected.  We took prompt action to secure our network environment and engaged leading independent cybersecurity and digital forensics experts to assist with our response and investigation.

The County has confirmed that the affected servers were impacted by a ransomware attack.  The attack has been attributed to the Royal ransomware group.

We have reported the incident to relevant state and federal agencies.  A coordinated response team including state and federal experts will be assisting with our effort to securely restore the Curry County network.

In the meantime, many systems and data are temporarily inaccessible. County telephone service is uninterrupted, but email communications are not available at this time. The response team will be working around the clock to restore operations. At this time, we cannot estimate when full access and services will be restored. The County is prioritizing service returns to public safety and public-facing departments.

No part of the vote counting process or the integrity of the upcoming election has been impacted by this incident.

Updates will continue to be posted to We appreciate your patience as we work to safely restore services.
