How one ransomware attack cost £45m to fix – BBC News

Ransomware cyber attacks are targeting large companies and demanding huge payments.

A Norwegian aluminium producer is recovering after hackers took 22,000 computers offline at 170 different sites around the world.
Norsk Hydro refused to cave in to the cyber criminal’s demands for money and have spent £45m trying to restore their business to full strength.

The attack comes as evidence grows that hackers are getting paid off in secret by large organisations who want an easy way out.

The BBC’s Cyber-security reporter Joe Tidy reports.

    Why the reporter is afraid?

    What a scumbag! Hackers like this should be hung.
    It is almost a terror attack targeting industry, but please get a data backup.

    So they can pay 45M to fix a ransomware attack but can’t fix the horrible audio?

    Fire your audio engineers

  5. Mecrom on March 11, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    That’s why you don’t expose your important systems to the internet

  6. Qwad Luzr on March 11, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    I’m guessing the sound engineer was a diversity quota hire??

  7. THTornado on March 11, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Have they not heard of data backup?

  12. Doug on March 11, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Getting a salesman do some actual work for once is no bad thing so at least something good came of it.

  16. Cat Chorney on March 11, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    I know people are complaining about the audio, but it’s sad/funny that finance was put into making sandwiches, nothing a bit more useful 1:22

  17. Sir Naught on March 11, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    My left ear is held ransom.

  18. Helmi MuZa on March 11, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    Really bad audio,

  19. Helen Trope on March 11, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    It’s interesting that they relied on paperwork in storage. How many companies would not have that paperwork to rely on?

  20. Addoman S on March 11, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    my head phones loved this….

  21. Raka Luthfi on March 11, 2020 at 4:18 pm

    this is ear rape

  22. uktech on March 11, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    Who was the sound engineer on this video??? WTF??? Seriously, WTF?
    Sound from footage, back from the 1950s is better than this.
    Whoever the sound engineer is, he/she needs to be sacked asap. This video shouldn’t have even been uploaded with such bad audio.

  23. Anthony Prasanna on March 11, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    damn hackers also hacked the audio going out from the company..

  24. Маша Муратбай on March 11, 2020 at 4:27 pm

  26. TAN on March 11, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    Who does the sound mixing for these videos ? It’s never consistent, select both channels for the Love of my ears

  27. Arjun surele on March 11, 2020 at 4:34 pm

  40. Andrean Riska on March 11, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    I’ve edited a lot of videos, not professionally, but I’m still curious about how can you messed up audio channels in your workflow.
