Sinclair Broadcast Group has fallen victim to ransomware.
Sinclair is one of the largest owners of broadcast stations in the U.S.
Its stations include WSBT-TV which has had its programming disrupted due to the cybersecurity breach.
The problems began over the weekend and have even hampered the effort to get local newscasts on the air to a normal degree.
The corporation, as well as the local news anchors at WSBT-TV, said they’ve been working around the clock to fix the problems and present the local news and their programming as best they can.
