The cyberattack was one of many aimed at Spanish companies, including Everis, an internet services firm owned by NTT, and prompted others like Aena and KPMG Spain to assure the public on Twitter that they had not been victims of the attacks. Everis sent employees home while it worked to result the incident, according to a Euro News report.

 

“It is particularly alarming to eye attackers successfully targeting IT consultancy firms. Those who are supposed to protect us from ransomware and prevent it fall victims to it, emphasizing catastrophic unpreparedness even amid technology consultants,” said Ilia Kolochenko, founder and CEO of ImmuniWeb.

 

“We may expect a further spike of targeted attacks against IT consultants that frequently disregard the fundamentals of cybersecurity to cut their internal costs on a highly-competitive and turbulent market,” he said. “Worse, those companies commonly have privileged access to a myriad of their customers’ networks without any control or due monitoring. Therefore, cybercriminals will soon start aggrandizing their attack scope to infect all their customers first and them disarm and paralyze the IT consultancies.”
