A recent ransomware attack on several websites in Poland illustrates this point. The attack targeted computers of two independent companies, the biggest of them is IT-Krakow. The other is a security firm, Wojciech Nowotny.
Wojciech Nowotny has previously told us that some of its systems were defused and many of its customers were harmed. It was in the autumn of 2016 that the attack took place. The company did not receive any ransom payments. This attack took place between December 15 and December 19.
The attack is the worst the Wojciech Nowotny is aware of. Most of the company’s clients have already paid the ransom, but a few have not made the payment.
What could have been the motive? The attackers wanted to obtain a copy of the computer software used by the companies. The malware attacks computers of an organization the targets that is a lot of IT-Krakow’s clients. The attack is based on the “Stuxnet” malware. What is Stuxnet? The Stuxnet malware is a worm-like malware that was created by the Russian government. It is the same malware that was used in the cyber attacks of a number of other countries in 2016.
Wojciech Nowotny has contacted Block Security on various occasions for help in investigating this attack. On November 13, 2016, we sent Wojciech Nowotny a report with a request to investigate the attack as well as send a report on the findings. We also provided an overview of the malware, how it works and how it can be used. We also provided a request to block the connection of Wojciech Nowotny as well as to contact Wojciech Nowotny’s customers.

Protecting Your User Accounts
Summary: The security of your users’ online security is one of the most important aspects of any company’s network. Unfortunately, as the information age advances, cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and more effective, creating a new way of defrauding users and stealing their sensitive information. To protect your users and their information, it’s important to hire a service provider who is well-versed in what online services are available and who understands how to protect your online information. This guide will help you get started by taking a look at what services may or may not be available for your users. Read this guide to protect your users and their information.
There are various kinds of cyber threats or intrusions: physical breaches; system compromises; and the possibility of network breaches. All of these types of intrusions can cause significant damage, including monetary losses as well as identity theft, network disruptions, and data loss. The last of these types of cyber intrusions can cause users to abandon passwords, financial information, and other sensitive information. Because network breaches are often the first type of intrusions to be detected, it’s important to be familiar with the online protection and privacy settings of your users and to get them to take good care of themselves when using services at any time of their life.
Online security breaches happen when someone surreptitiously gains access to systems without authorization or without the knowledge of who on the network is authorized to handle that particular system. The online threats people face today are all the more frequent for the Internet has never had such broad reach and users can be as susceptible as they are today.
The most common types of online security breaches are breaches involving passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other non-personal sensitive data. If your users’ passwords are lost or stolen or their credit card numbers are compromised, even the best password protection systems can’t prevent all forms of online breaches. Online security breaches sometimes involve web sites that are not under your domain; for example a networked chat room that is hosted on your network may not be under your network’s control.
A good service provider will help your users protect their online information.
