The Clop variant of ransomware has struck a German software company, swiping over 1tb of data. The hack begins with extensive reconnaissance work, before a series of advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks, which enables data to be extracted and ransomware to be deployed.
These hacks usually cost the victims millions in lost revenue, ransoms and reputational damage, as well as extended downtime for the business and its customer base. So, beware of any poor web security you may have, as this is how the hackers could exploit your system.
