More than 14,000 real estate agents, appraisers and related professionals in California’s North Bay and San Francisco markets are able to access online property listings again after a cyberattack paralyzed their multiple listing services.

According to a report in the North Bay Business Journal, the Bay Area Real Estate Information Service Inc. (BAREIS) and the San Francisco Association of Realtors alerted their members that they could directly log in to the multiple listing services for the first time since an Aug. 8 ransomware attack against data vendor Rapattoni Corp. locked out users of 22 MLSes in California and nationwide.

Rappatoni has made few public statements on the ransomware attack since it occurred, although yesterday it posted to X (formerly Twitter): “Rapattoni MLS is on its way back to our customers! We’re so thankful for our customers’ support during this time and we’re continuing the nonstop work to bring all our products back online.”
