A new ransomware attack on technology service provider Kaseya VSA could affect over 40,000 computers worldwide, according to cybersecurity experts. It likely infected hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of computers.
The group, known as REvil is a well-known ransomware purveyor. Ransomware is malicious software that locks a computer until a ransom is paid, often in the form of bitcoin. Groups like this often target businesses with vulnerabilities. Shoring up those holes could be the difference between staying up or being shut down for weeks at a time.
