Ransomware Attack at Unidentified Bavarian Wood Processing Manufacturer

February 15, 2024

INCIDENT

A wood processing company in Deggendorf, Germany, encountered a ransomware attack. Unknown perpetrators managed to encrypt several of the company's servers by installing malware. This meant that working in emergency mode was only possible for a short period of time. Since the company did not contact the perpetrators, no demands for money have been reported so far. A swift law enforcement response and deployment of backups facilitated system recovery.
