Zotob disables Jefferson 9-1-1

PORT HADLOCK -- Jefferson County officials suspect that the software virus called "Zotob" affected computer systems serving emergency and county services for about 10 hours on Friday.

Jeffcom 9-1-1 dispatchers reported that their computer system failed at 12:45 p.m. Friday, preventing access to law enforcement information, such as arrest warrants and driving records. The glitch also affected eight dispatch communication lines, reducing the number of available 9-1-1 lines.
