Recently, they suffered a ransomware attack that seriously disrupted operations and caused material business impacts. Ransomware is an indiscriminate menace to anyone who uses information technology. Attackers gain access to systems and render files inaccessible to the users. Recently, attackers have begun leaking files on so-called leak sites to further encourage victims to pay up.
