Fujifilm Pwned By Ransomware Attack

Oh look. We have another victim of ransomware. This time, Japanese multinational conglomerate Fujifilm has been forced to shut down parts of its global network after being pwned in a ransomware attack:

The company, which is best known for its digital imaging products but also produces high-tech medical kit, including devices for rapid processing of COVID-19 tests, confirmed that its Tokyo headquarters was hit by a cyberattack on Tuesday evening. “Fujifilm Corporation is currently carrying out an investigation into possible unauthorized access to its server from outside of the company. As part of this investigation, the network is partially shut down and disconnected from external correspondence,” the company said in a statement posted to its website. “We want to state what we understand as of now and the measures that the company has taken. In the late evening of June 1, 2021, we became aware of the possibility of a ransomware attack. As a result, we have taken measures to suspend all affected systems in coordination with our various global entities,” it said.

Well, this isn’t good. When will these companies learn that preventing attacks like this is an absolute necessity these days? Clearly they didn’t figure this out and now they are paying for it. And worse yet, I’ll be writing about another company that got pwned in some way, shape, and form.
