OKI Data do Brasil Suffers Ransomware Attack by LockBit3

LockBit3, a prolific ransomware group, has claimed responsibility for an attack on OKI Data do Brasil, a manufacturing company based in Brazil. The victim's website is currently inaccessible, and no information about the company's size or unique features could be gleaned from the search results.

LockBit3 has been active in targeting various industries, including manufacturing, and has been disrupting operations worldwide. The group has been linked to numerous attacks in the United States and other countries, with a focus on businesses in the manufacturing sector. The attack on OKI Data do Brasil is part of a broader trend of ransomware attacks on companies, which have increased by 50% in 2023 compared to the previous year.

Ransomware attacks typically involve encrypting a victim's files and demanding a ransom for their decryption. In some cases, the attackers may also steal data from the victim's systems and threaten to release it unless the ransom is paid. The average ransom payment is $812,360, and 36% of businesses that pay the ransom fall victim to ransomware attacks for a second time.

To mitigate the risks of ransomware attacks, companies should implement robust cybersecurity measures, such as regular software updates, employee training, and data backups. Additionally, organizations should be prepared to respond to ransomware attacks by having a well-defined incident response plan in place.


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.
