City of Riviera Beach, Fl agrees to pay 65 bitcoins or about $600,000 ransom to restore it's computer systems.

At a special council meeting on Monday night, the council voted unanimously to authorize the city’s insurance carrier to pay a 65 Bitcoin ransom to recover the city’s data which has been encrypted.
City leaders say paying the ransom, which equates to about $600,000, will hopefully return the computer system to be fully operational.
Riviera Beach agrees to pay $600K ransom to get computer system back online
On Monday night, the city also introduced a new IT director.

In my opinion, the IT Director in place when this happened should be in jail, receive no benefits from the city and any future retirement be forfeited.
