STATE ACTORS: RANSOMWARE - Spain´s scientific research hub targeted by Ransomware attack

STATE ACTORS: RANSOMWARE - Spanish scientific research hub targeted by Ransomware attack
Posted By: Iain Fraser - Cybersecurity Journalist


Associated Press have reported that Spain´s scientific research hub has been targetted by a Russia cyber attack. The Spanish Science Ministry said in an announcement that the Spanish National Research Council was targeted by the ransomware attack on July 16-17 [2022]

In a statement, the ministry said that the cyber attack was similar to others carried out against NASA in the United States and the Max Planck Institute in Germany, however a preliminary analysis by Spain’s cybersecurity authority said that it appears that no sensitive or confidential information was extracted.

Even though it appears the attack failed, the security protocols activated to ensure that the Ransomware attack was unsuccessful have inevitably left several of the council’s research centers off-line.
