Did “The Russians” Hack The DMV Too? Statewide California Systems Down Due To “Major Computer Outage”

(Before It's News)

It must have been the Russians, right? CBS Los Angeles reports that officials Tuesday were working to fix a “major computer outage” at California Department of Motor Vehicles offices statewide.

Customer transactions at dozens of DMV field offices were impacted by the outage, including offices in Los Angeles, Hollywood, Compton, El Monte, Fullerton, and Thousand Oaks.

Any DMV offices affected “will continue providing drive tests, making return appointments, helping with paperwork, and answering customer’s questions”, a DMV spokesperson confirmed.

Online services on the DMV website did not appear to be affected, officials said.

DMV says “Crews have been working all night to rebuild the system and get offices back up and running.”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the outage was linked to a massive cyber attack last week on server farms of a key Internet firm that repeatedly disrupted access to major websites and online services including Twitter, Netflix and PayPal.

Some customers also reported a similar problem on Monday. And some Twitter users complained about the issues as far back as Oct. 19. People are not happy…


And we know one 16-year-old girl who will be very upset tomorrow if this is not fixed.
