Software AG, one of the largest software companies in the world, has suffered a ransomware attack over the last weekend, and the company has not yet fully recovered from the incident.
A ransomware gang going by the name of "Clop" has breached the company's internal network on Saturday, October 3, encrypted files, and asked for more than $20 million to provide the decryption key.
Software AG disclosed the incident on Monday when it revealed it was facing disruptions on its internal network "due to [a] malware attack."
The company said that services to customers, including its cloud-based services, remained unaffected and that it was not aware "of any customer information being accessed by the malware attack."
