Attack on the Municipality of Alegre

A translated statement posted to the organization’s website reads: “Cyber-attack on the technological infrastructure of the Municipality of Alegre. The Municipality of Alegre informs that this weekend the servers suffered hacker attacks where a VIRUS known as RANSOMWARE was installed. After confirmation on this date (06/06/2022), the NTI (Information Technology Nucleus) team carried out measures to isolate the threat, where preliminary studies indicated that a large part of the data was affected, preventing access by users and sectors that use these systems. There is no information regarding data leaks so far. All City Hall services are unavailable indefinitely. A BU (Unified Bulletin) was opened for the responsible authorities to take the appropriate measures.”

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.
