Kelvinsecurity Claims Ransomware Attack on Caribbean Tours

Company Information

Caribbean Tours, a prominent transportation company in the Dominican Republic, offers a comprehensive suite of services. These include inter-urban, urban, and international transportation, alongside package and document delivery solutions.


The precise vulnerabilities exploited in the ransomware attack on Caribbean Tours remain unspecified. Nonetheless, it is widely recognized that ransomware groups often target entities through unpatched software vulnerabilities, inadequate password policies, or through exploiting unsecured remote access configurations.


Ransomware attacks are notorious for their disruptive potential, primarily through the encryption of critical data and the subsequent demands for ransom in exchange for decryption keys. The attack on Caribbean Tours likely disrupted their operational capabilities, posing a risk of data loss or service unavailability, thereby impacting their customer service provisions.


To effectively mitigate the risks associated with ransomware attacks, organizations are advised to maintain up-to-date software, enforce robust password policies, and restrict remote access to essential personnel only. Implementing regular data backup strategies is also crucial, as it enables the restoration of affected data, minimizing the attack's impact.


Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
