Global ransomware attacks hit Europe, US, Russia
WEBSITE SERVER SECURITY THREAT
Here at Aqua Vita, we strive to provide the very best and safest services possible. Criminal hackers are constantly looking for a way to fatten their wallets by holding you and your resources ransom. Such an event just occurred globally this past week.
You may or may not have noticed some inconvenience when your web servers had some “unexpected maintenance.” Behind the scenes, our server techs at SiteGround battled a global ransomware attack. SiteGround won.
Within the hour, all our sites were back up safely.
COMPANY DATA SECURITY
All around the globe, massive industries and companies were held hostage. Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant had to manually monitor its radiation levels. Another international server company could not fix the problem and paid 1M to recover their data. In the US, Merk and DLA Piper and other companies have been affected at the company level.
SiteGround techs said in the last two years they have only encountered two attacks of this magnitude. At AquaVita, we want to take a moment to celebrate the massive victory won for you, and to help you be prepared for the future.
