Hacker Attack Disrupts Operations at Grupo Jaime Câmara

A hacker attack made all systems that serve the vehicles of the Jaime Câmara communication group, such as television and radio stations, websites and printed newspapers, unavailable. Local TV news is being produced in a limited way, with few reports being shown, and even some radio stations are off the air. Internally, the technical problem is attributed to a ransomware attack — a type of malicious software commonly used for extortion.

According to exclusive information obtained by the TV Pop report, the hacker attack was an attempt to interrupt the operations of Grupo Jaime Camera's media outlets and takes place on the eve of coverage of the October 2 elections.

The criminals would have given a period of seven days for the media company to pay the amount of R$ 1 million or all data will be erased. Behind the scenes of the group that controls the Globo affiliate, the hope is that there is a backup with the data kidnapped by the hackers and operations are resumed as soon as possible.

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.
