Greenfrog were recently approached by the Police Cyber Crime unit to assist in a ransomware incident.
In this case the attackers found a loophole and broke into the system, encrypting the customer’s data.
Greenfrog were not directly involved in the day-to-day running of the system, however the client had retained us for backup. We were therefore able to completely recover all the customer data.
We are advising all our customers of the necessity of a solid, robust backup, as well as regular security reviews to discover and plug any loopholes.
Greenfrog Computing offer a free onsite review for any new potential customer who is not sure if their IT is working as it should. Please take advantage of this; after all, sometimes the bad guys come knocking on your door without going to Salisbury first!
