Sodinokibi Ransomware Hits New York Airport Systems
Albany International Airport in New York, US, was hit by the Sodinokibi Ransomware, following a cyberattack that took place over Christmas. The attackers were able to infiltrate the airport's systems through the maintenance server of its managed service provider, Logical Net, before spreading the ransomware to all administrative and backup servers. The airport subsequently paid a “under six figures” ransom for the decryption key so that affected servers could be recovered. The incident did not affect airport operations and no personal data were stolen. In recent months, ransomware operators have been stealing files from victims before encrypting compromised servers and threatening to release sensitive information to the public if a ransom is not paid in time.
