The Portland, Oregon based McMenamins brewery and hotel chain, with 62 locations employing around 3,500 individuals, and an estimated annual revenue of USD 180 million, suffered a ransomware attack on December 12th.
The attack has been attributed to the ruthless Conti extortion gang, who were also behind more than 400 ransomware attacks, including the recent attacks on jeweler Graff and Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE).
McMenamins’ servers and workstations were encrypted in the attack, forcing a shutdown of IT systems, point-of-sale systems, and corporate email to prevent further spread. The company has stated that there is no initial evidence that customer data accessed or stolen, but are working with the FBI and a cybersecurity firm to complete a more thorough investigation.
The Active Protection included in Acronis Cyber Protect detects the behaviors of Conti and other ransomware, stopping them before your data is stolen or files are encrypted.
