Darryl Broome, a contractor who does remodeling and demolition work, poses in front of a Mecklenburg County county government office building on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, in Charlotte, N.C. Broome went in person to retrieve land information he normally could look up on his home computer in the aftermath of a cyberattack that affected dozens of county servers earlier in the week. Mecklenburg County was using backed-up data to make digital repairs after refusing to pay foreign hackers that froze dozens of county servers earlier this week.
