Security Stop Press : Ransomware Attack On UK IT Service Provider

It’s been reported that according to a dark web victim blog of cybercrime hacking gang ‘Donut,’ Nottingham-based IT Service Provider Agilitas may have been the subject of a ransomware attack.

Donut is reported to be claiming that it is in possession of the source code and SQL databases belonging to Agilitas and is threatening to start posting the information onto the dark web to force the company to meet its ransom demands.

This highlights how no businesses (even IT Service Providers and security experts) are immune to being targeted by cyber criminals and the advice to all businesses is to remain vigilant, continuously update their security protocols, and educate their employees about the dangers of phishing and other cyber threats.
