In July 2021, Kaseya, a multinational information technology software company, fell victim to a ransomware attack orchestrated by Yaroslav Vasinskyi, a Ukrainian national. This attack was part of a broader series conducted by the Sodinokibi/REvil ransomware group, targeting various businesses and government entities across the United States. The attack leveraged malicious code within a Kaseya product, causing the deployment of the ransomware across Kaseya customer networks worldwide. This action encrypted data on the computers of organizations using Kaseya software, severely impacting their operations. Victims were left with ransom notes demanding payment for decryption keys, resulting in widespread disruption. This incident highlights the potent threat posed by ransomware attacks on global businesses and the critical need for robust cybersecurity measures.
