In March 2023, TechFirm Inc. experienced a significant Ransomware attack targeting their internal network. The attack encrypted critical data and demanded a substantial ransom for the decryption key. While the company was able to avoid paying the ransom through the use of backups, the breach caused significant downtime and disruption to their services. Analysis revealed that the breach was due to an unpatched vulnerability in their system, which was exploited by the attackers. The incident exposed the personal information of over 10,000 customers, including names, email addresses, and transaction histories. The attack not only resulted in financial losses due to operational downtime but also damaged the company's reputation and trust with its customers.
