Ransomware Attack on Grupo Jaime Câmara Disrupts Major Media Operations

An unknown threat actor has attacked Organization Jaime Camara. On 23rd September 2022, a ransomware attack targeted the servers and networks of Grupo Jaime Câmara, the controlling entity of Goiás' largest media network. This cyber-attack wreaked havoc on most of their operations, affecting prominent entities such as TV Anhanguera, an affiliate of Globo, the websites of O Popular and Daqui newspapers, and the CBN Goiânia radio station. Additionally, the Executive and Moov radio stations were also impacted. As a result, all these media outlets' websites are currently offline.

Users quickly became aware of the issue when they encountered error messages while trying to access the affected websites. The consequences of the attack were significant, leading to the suspension of transmissions for the Goiânia-based radio stations Executivo and Moov FM. Meanwhile, the TV broadcast was unable to transmit editions of the regional newspaper to the interior.

Impact on News Broadcast

The TVPop portal reported that during the statewide lunchtime news broadcast, presenter Lilian Lynch resorted to a stack of paper sheets, replacing her usual notebook, as a result of the attack's disruption.

Ransom Demand

Several publications have disclosed that the attackers demanded a ransom of approximately BRL 1 million in exchange for providing the decryption key to access the encrypted files.

We reinforce that all customer and user data is protected by encryption and, therefore, there is no risk of leakage. The attack's damage is limited to restricting access to our systems.

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.
