Operators of the ransomware REvil continue to attack large companies. Judging by the information on the official blog REvil on the darknet, one of the largest telecommunications companies in Spain, MasMovil, was among the recent victims of ransomware.
According to the group, it was able to steal MasMovil databases and other important information. As evidence of the hack, the hackers posted screenshots showing folders with data allegedly stolen from MasMovil. What amount of the ransom is in question, the blog does not indicate.
The Spanish telecom giant confirmed the incident, but noted that the attack affected “minor servers” and no information was stolen. Investigation into the incident is ongoing.
