Dataresolution.net, a cloud hosting provider that reportedly supports over 30,000 businesses worldwide appears to be another recent victim of the Ryuk ransomware and is reportedly responding to the attack which occurred on Christmas Eve. It is being reported that the attack is from North Korea.
The attack appeared to allow the attackers to gain control of Data Resolution’s data center domain and locked the company out of its system for a brief time. The company is telling customers that it does not appear that the data was stolen, but the attack’s purpose was to obtain money from the company to regain access to the data.
As of January 2, 2019, reports indicate that the company continues to work on restoring its data and that it did not appear to pay the ransom.
