Silicon Angle published a recent article on the golf and ski resort operator Boyne Resorts, who has been hit by a ransomware attack that forced the company to shut down parts of its network.

Silicon Angle reports that the attack was first detected in the company’s corporate office a week ago before spreading to computer systems at the various resorts Boyne operates. As a result of the attack, company booking systems were offline, including the ability for customers to make online reservations.

K2 Cyber Security’s CTO and Co-Founder Jayant Shukla provided commentary to Silicon Angle on cyber criminals and their increasingly common target of travel company websites, along with steps targeted organizations like travel companies can take to improve their security, including web application and application workload security.
