The global outsourcing company Serco, which these days also deals with corona tests, was attacked in a ransom attack
The company, which originates from the UK and employs about 50k employees , confirms that it is indeed suffering from a ransomware attack but does not specify what the impact is on the company’s systems and what the ransom amount is.
The Babuk attack group, which began its activities in January 2021 , is the one responsible for the attack.
A referral to Serco by media organizations was made after they received information about the uploading of the ransom message to the VirusTotal website where the attackers wrote that they have been online for 3 weeks and have pulled 1TB of information.
(It was not disclosed how the information from VitusTotal reached the media)
