Staffing firm hit by Ransomware, bad news for employees

A new ransomware to me, REvil (capital r, capital evil) seems quite new to me. I don’t remember if I’ve read about this one, but this particular ransomware hit a staffing firm and walked off with many tyypes of data.

The data includes but not limited to username, password, social security numbers, medical information including medical insurance info, financial info including payment card info, drivers liscenses or state ID, government issued ID, passport, visa and electronic/digital signature info according to the article.

Some of this data can mean bad news for the person whose info was taken. This definitely isn’t good, and it took this company a long time to determine what was going on. The good news is that they were able to restore from backups according to the article.

If you wish to read more, I found this on twitter through one of my followers who tweeted the bleeping computer article US staffing firm Artech discloses ransomware attack, data breach and this can’t be good in the long term.
