Sopra Steria identifies ransomware behind cyber attack

Monday 26 October 2020 | 16:15 CET | News
IT services group Sopra Steria has pinpointed the source of the cyber attack that hit its information systems early last week. The virus has been identified as a new version of the Ryuk ransomware, said the company, adding that it was previously unknown to antivirus software providers and security agencies. Sopra Steria's investigation teams have also established that the cyber attack was launched a few days before it was detected, on 20 October. At this stage, the assessment has found no evidence of leaked data or damage to clients' IT systems.
