    Ukraine govt, banks & airports hit by mass ransomware attack

    Ukraine govt, banks & airports hit by mass ransomware attack

    Ukraine has been affected by massive cyberattacks targeting the country's government, banks and companies, as well as the capital's airports. Cybersecurity specialists say the attack was the same virus that hit Russian oil company Rosneft.

    "Our network seems to be down, too, in case you wondered! This picture is on all of the Cabinet computer screens," the country's vice prime minister, Pavel Rozenko, posted on Facebook, along with a picture of a computer starting up after an apparent error.

    "Computers aren't functioning in the government building," the Kiev authorities told Interfax-Ukraine news agency. Security forces said that the intelligence services are looking into the cyberattacks. A blackmail encryption virus was used in the attack. Screenshots of affected computers posted online show screens demanding $300 worth of bitcoin as ransom for the encrypted data.

    lol

    From the article:
    Despite Russian companies also being hit, Ukrainian security officials were quick to point the finger at Moscow.

    No doubt, ransomware is an inside job.

    Anyone thinking the new world of cyber insurance sales?

    Ukraine is owned by Victoria Newland and Obama Admin. neocons and that is why they blamed Russia. It's all part of the 'Russie did it" meme that was hatched by the neocons and carried forward by the DNC operatives.

    Russia is one of the countries that was hit by this same cyber attack so why would Russia attack itself.

    This news summary seems to indicate that we will start now experiencing rapid-fire "false flag" events because there are many big happenings THEY need to distract us from.

    So an insured party could claim the ransom costs? Does the insured need to mitigate their risk in anyway?

    I know of people who have and in that case yes.

    but the computer is done for. At a minimum the hard drive has to go and there are so many other vectors, it's best to trash it and move on.

    I know of other examples where decrypt keys have been available. Very fortunate. But in some situations even the decrypt keys won't save you.

    Cyber insurance definitely has a market.
