Oriental Aroma Restaurant Hit by Lockbit2 Ransomware Attack

The Lockbit2 ransomware group has claimed responsibility for an attack on Oriental Aroma Restaurant, a Chinese cuisine establishment located in Harpenden, AL5. Despite being categorized within the Manufacturing sector, the specific attributes that distinguish the restaurant in its industry remain undisclosed.

Renowned for its assertive strategies, the Lockbit2 ransomware group predominantly targets large-scale organizations, imposing substantial ransom demands. Since its emergence in 2021, the group has been implicated in numerous notable breaches, including an attack on Newgen Software Technologies Limited.

This incident underscores a critical message: no entity, irrespective of its scale or sector, is exempt from cyber threats. It is imperative for all businesses to fortify their cybersecurity frameworks to safeguard their digital resources and diminish the vulnerabilities ransomware attacks exploit.


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.
