Software AG hard-hit by ransomware attack, cybercriminals demand over $20 million


So far it has not been determined if the ransom has been paid.

It has been an unfortunately busy year for ransomware attacks. This week US-based Tyler Technologies was attacked and two weeks ago the Universal Health Services also was hit by cybercriminals armed with malicious ransomware.

Clop ransomware was also used in the Netherlands Maastricht University attack in December 2019. In February 2020, Maastricht confirmed that it was attacked by cybercriminals known as the TA505 Hackers and they paid 30 bitcoin in ransom.
