Michigan utility shuts down systems, phone lines, email after ransomware attack

Last week was a busy week when it comes to ransomware. New victims included a utility company, visitors to a toymaker’s website, pirates sailing The Pirate Bay and many more. Some cyber crooks are now demanding gift cards for ransom instead of bitcoin. While it wasn’t all bad news, there are new decryptors and detectors, the FBI published a new warning about the proliferation of increasingly sophisticated ransomware campaigns.

Utility company hit with ransomware

Lansing Board of Water & Light (BWL), a Michigan municipal utility, was hit with ransomware after an employee opened an email with a malicious attachment. The ransomware spread, encrypting files on other computers on the internal network; BWL shut down its accounting system, email service for 250 employees and “phone lines,” including the customer assistance line for account inquiries and the line for reporting outages. “Printers and other technology” were also affected.

Cybereason gains Lockheed Martin's Threat Intelligence to thwart cyberattacks

Given the recent sharp increase in cyberattacks of all kinds, IT operations driving enterprise scale networks need something that will effectively reduce their intelligence gathering problems and help to automate their response to be as fast as possible. What’s needed is the ability to identify and deal with attacks as they happen but there are some really significant challenges in doing this including the sheer scale of  network event data, the problem of filtering out the event "noise" and false positives, and the ability to detect zero day threats. 

With what must be one of the headiest combinations of hot technologies I’ve seen for a while, the security company Cybereason uses behavioral analytics, big data, and machine learning along with major league threat intelligence resources to thwart cyberattacks in, they claim, real time.
