Oregon email restored; official says hack fed scheme (Phys .org)

The freeze, initiated by providers at four popular email servers including Hotmail and Outlook, had blocked all messages from official Oregon.Gov email addresses from being delivered. But the attack that led to the state’s email service being temporarily blacklisted likely wasn’t targeting government data.”
