Reuters reports that a ransomware attack hit Spain's largest radio station, Cadena SER, yesterday. National service was disrupted, although local broadcasting continued. It's unknown what strain of ransomware was involved in the attack. SER is working toward recovery.
Spain's National Security Department said that other, unspecified, companies were affected by similar attacks. BleepingComputer says it's confirmed (through a leaked copy of the ransom note) that NTT Data subsidiary Everis was also hit. One of Spain's larger managed service providers, Everis is thought to have been infected with a variant of Bitpaymer ransomware. The extortionists have asked the MSP for €750,000 ($835,923) in ransom, Bitcoin.es reports. Other enterprises are concerned about the possibility of downstream attacks flowing from those affecting the widely used MSP. BleepingComputer cites an anonymous source close to those investigating the incident as saying that the extortionists may have exploited the BlueKeep vulnerability in their attack, but the grounds for this suspicion may be circumstantial.
