IS YOUR COMPANY'S SOFTWARE PUTTING YOU AT RISK? CYBER ATTACK AFFECTS OVER 1,500 COMPANIES

DOES YOUR COMPANY'S SOFTWARE PUT YOU AT RISK?

A group of cyber criminals called REvil has carried out an massive cyber attack that affected over 1,500 companies worldwide. 

Hackers demanded $70 million in cryptocurrency in return of a key that could give back control of the data 'taken hostage' to the victim companies. 

How did they do it? The hackers have a vulnerability was found in a management software used by many companies worldwide. By affecting the company providing the software service, they have also affected all their client companies as a result. This is one of the ways in which a cybercriminal can attack your company.

Most of the organisations affected are small and medium-sized enterprises (dental offices, car dealerships, libraries, schools, grocery shops, etc.).

SMEs were victims of blackmail made possible by a vulnerability in one of their suppliers. This course of action is common among hackers who, instead of attacking 1,500 companies individually, they exploit weaknesses in services widely used by businesses. 

How to defend yourself? The advice is to constantly monitor the security of computer systems used and to secure themselves against possible attacks.
