TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Leon County Sheriff's Office has confirmed to WCTV that they and the State Attorney's Office were "intruded" by a computer virus.

LCSO Lt. Grady Jordan said the Sheriff's Office had an intrusion by a "very sophisticated worm/virus," that caused computers to act abnormally.

Lt. Jordan said they noticed it last Wednesday and it was fixed fully over the weekend.

Jordan said they were not targeted by the hack, and instead that it was a widespread issue.

Officials do not believe any information was compromised in the hack and that the LCSO computers were fully operational throughout.

We're told that the worm also affected a system used by the State Attorney’s Office.

We've reached out to the State Attorney's Office for comment but have not yet heard back.
