Ski Resort Hit with Ransomware
This is the peak season for reserving a ski vacation, but travelers will be out of luck if hoping to book through Boyne Resorts. The US ski and golf resort operator, which manages properties in popular destinations like Big Sky, Montana and Sugarloaf, Maine, has been attacked by Russian ransomware WastedLocker.
CyberWire recently covered this ransomware attack in their privacy briefing. They also reached out to K2 Cyber Security and got commentary from K2’s CTO and Co-Founder Jayant Shukla, who commented on the travel industry as an increasingly targeted segment, along with how companies can protect themselves against ransomware including increasing their efforts around web application security, including making sure they keep up to date with patches and updates.
