An Atlanta cyberattack has caused widespread city-run program outages and raised fears about the security of financial and personal data belonging to government workers, residents and others who have used online services provided by Georgia’s capital city, officials said on Friday.

Among the services affected by the breach, discovered early on Thursday, are warrant issuances, water service requests, new inmate processing, court fee payments and other online bill-pay programs across a range of city departments, officials told a news conference.
