A well-known Manufacturing Company was hit by a Ransomware attack
One morning when the employees tried to turn on their Desktops (Computers), they were not able to access any files stored on the computers and servers.
A message displayed on the screen of every computer which said “For decryption contact “firstname.lastname@example.org”. They understood that their systems and data were compromised.
ANA Cyber Forensic team conducted an investigation and it was found that the hacker was able gain access to one of the systems inside the Company through which he was able to penetrate into their network and gained access to their other systems and servers. The hacker encrypted the entire data on the systems and servers with a private key and the file extensions were changed to “.wallet”.
We suggested them to install anti-ransomware tools and told them to implement business continuity and disaster recovery plan for their critical assets which includes offsite data backup.
