A cardboard box manufacturer in Wardrecques, France was hit by a cyberattack, most likely ransomware (Fr: “piratage”). Production was shutdown, and workers sent home. News reports are all in La Voix Du Nord which unfortunately is paywalled, but the headlines and synopsis says enough. The company’s systems were decrypted by a journalist, Damien Bancal, and ransom was not paid.
