The WannaCry ransomware cyber attack spread like a wildfire in the past few months, paralysing computer systems across the world. Delhi saw its first such attack in August when one of the leading publishers in Delhi, Rachna Sagar Pvt Ltd, an educational publisher was locked out of about 200 computers. The ransomware was first noticed on 9 August when employees were unable to log into their user accounts. The matter was then reported to the IT department who discovered that the systems had fallen prey to the ransomware. They later found that the hackers had posted a message demanding a ransom of $8000-$1000 in Bitcoin.
Book Link made several attempts to get in touch with Rachna Sagar but they didn’t get back to us.
