Ransomware, Phoenix Group
CNA Financial, one of the largest insurance companies in the US, reportedly paid hackers $40 million after a ransomware attack blocked access to the company's network and stole its data. CNA first announced the hack in late March, stating that it had seen a "sophisticated cybersecurity attack" on March 21 that had "impacted certain CNA systems." To address the incident, the company called in outside experts and law enforcement, both of which launched an investigation into the attack. The spokesperson also noted that a group called "Phoenix" was behind the attack. The ransomware used on CNA is known as Phoenix Locker, a spin-off of another malware "Hades" created by Russian hacking organization Evil Corp.
