Va. computer system crashes again
The state's computer system has been hit by another widespread outage.
A spokeswoman for the Virginia Information Technologies Agency says Friday's statewide outage affected several agencies. Among them was the Department of Motor Vehicles, which was unable to process driver's license transactions for about an hour.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that officials attributed the problem to a firewall failure at VITA's center in Chesterfield County.
In late August, a massive outage crippled state services for eight days. VITA runs the state's computer system through a $2.5 billion, 13-year contract with Northrop Grumman, which is paying for an investigation of the August outage by the legislature's watchdog agency.
