VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Lowndes County administrators are still working to rid their computer system of a virus created by a hacker.

The virus went off just before election results were counted on Tuesday.

It didn't affect the results but kept them from being released online.

County Information Technology personnel worked until 2:00 AM Thursday morning and hope to have problems fixed soon.

The Lowndes County Sheriff's Office is investigating the case.  But they say finding the hacker could be difficult.

"It is a point of service attack where the person who launches this sends out information to an unlimited number of IP addresses and then directs them to attack yours all at one time," says Paige Dukes of the Lowndes County Commission.

County officials believe this was an attack only on the Lowndes County web site since no other counties are reporting similar problems.
