LXer: Ransom racket hits Brisbane businesses
Published at LXer:

Medical centres, entertainment businesses, mechanic's workshops and advertising companies have been targeted by hackers and more than 100 Queensland businesses may have fallen victim to hackers holding their computer files to ransom according to the police. Once they gain access to a business's file system, the hackers encrypt the data on the server, lock it down and make it completely inaccessible. They then demand thousands of dollars for the return of the information.
