Bay & Bay Transport, MN Hit by Ransomware Attack a 2nd Time

January 30, 2024


Bay & Bay Transport was targeted by a ransomware gang called Conti. Wade Anderson, Bay & Bay’s chief information officer, chief technology officer and head of marketing said that ransomware only impacted some of its systems and “a small minority” of desktop computers, but that everything was shut down as a precaution. The company, he said, had measures in place to minimize the impacts and was able to return to “90% functionality” within about a day in a half, he said.

In contrast to its response to the attack in 2018, Bay & Bay refused to pay. Anderson said the company was in a better position to recover on its own instead of paying the criminals for the key to decrypt its data
