Record fee demanded in ransomware attack


Kaseya, an IT provider based in Florida, was the subject of one of the biggest ever ransomware attacks at the beginning of July. Kaseya’s cybersecurity team worked across the Independence Day weekend to try and limit the effects of the attack. However, it was soon clear that they’d been hit by sophisticated ransomware that had stolen customer data. As Kaseya is a managed service provider, the malware was also pushed to clients’ systems. Kaseya estimated that between 800-1,500 customers were affected. The hacker group responsible, REvil, demanded $70million as ransom.
