July 6, 2021 – Hacker group REvil demands $ 70 million ransom in Bitcoin
The hackers, who attacked hundreds of companies with blackmail software, are demanding a ransom of 70 million euros in the form of the digital currency Bitcoin for a master key to the affected computers. The hacking group claims that their software infected more than a million computers.

The extent of the damage caused by the cyber attack can still hardly be assessed. Kaseya reported that fewer than 40 customers were affected.
According to the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), an IT service provider and several of its customers were affected in Germany. There are several thousand computers in several companies, according to a spokesman. As far as the government knows, federal authorities and critical infrastructure facilities “of a size that must be reported” are not affected, said a spokeswoman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
