The Spanish government agency for labor has been attacked by Ryuk ransomware and following the attack, more than 700 agency offices throughout Spain have been affected. The agency’s website stated they are currently working on restoring priority services as soon as possible. The agency ensures that confidential data is safe, and the payroll systems were not affected by the attack. The attacks spread from the agency’s offices and began to infect workers computers at home before it was contained. Ryuk is a Ransomware-as-a-services group that has been active since 2018 and accounts for almost one-third of the total number of ransomware attacks in 2020.
