BlackSuit ransomware - what you need to know


What's going on?

A cybercriminal group calling itself BlackSuit has claimed responsibility for a series of ransomware attacks, including breaches at schools in central Georgia.

And earlier in the year, a zoo in Tampa Bay was targeted by the same hacking gang.

Meanwhile, liberal arts college DePauw University in Indiana says that it was recently targeted, and a "limited amount of data on specific individuals was accessed." 214GB of stolen data has since been made available for download on BlackSuit's extortion site on the dark web.
