Comic Relief server hit by ransomware!

 
 

Internal systems at Comic Relief have been down for a number of days now. This was after ransomware managed to attack one of the charity’s servers. Zennon Hannick who is the CTO confirmed that there has been an attack on one of the servers. Hannick also mentioned that the information stored on this server, has been encrypted and they cannot access it.

Staff were informed that there was no access to the internet, webmail or citrix. The staff have been told to work from home if they need any internet access. Comic Relief can’t access the outside world at the moment, although the team are trying to put security measures in place so access can be restored.
