travelex hacked


Hackers are holding foreign exchange company Travelex to ransom after a cyber-attack forced the firm to turn off all computer systems and resort to using pen and paper.
On New Year's Eve, hackers launched their attack on the Travelex network.
As a result, the company took down its websites across 30 countries to contain "the virus and protect data".
A ransomware gang called Sodinokibi has told the BBC it is behind the hack and wants Travelex to pay $6m (4.6m).
The gang, also known as REvil, claims to have gained access to the company's computer network six months ago and to have downloaded 5GB of sensitive customer data.
Dates of birth, credit card information and social security numbers are all in their possession, they say.

Not looking good...
