This includes critical care, diagnostic procedures, surgical interventions, and treatment for various medical conditions and injuries. The clinic plays a crucial role in ensuring that pet owners have access to essential veterinary care for their animals during times when immediate attention is required, such as evenings, weekends, and holidays.

Knight Ransomware's Impact

Knight posted Solano-Napa Pet Emergency Clinic to its data leak site on September 6th but provided no further details.

It has been found distributing the Knight ransomware strain through spoof Tripadvisor complaints. Knight typically demands $5000 in ransom payment to decrypt or return stolen files.

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.
