Back to Ransomware


Ransomware affects network of Everis and popular radio station Cadena SER.

On November 4, 2019, the NTT DATA company Everis reported a ransomware attack that encrypted its computer systems. Around the same time, Spain’s largest radio station Cadena SER (Sociedad Española de Radiodifusión) also reported a similar attack.

The incident.

Everis notified all its employees that it had been the victim of a virus attack and requested that all PCs be turned off. According to the website, the hackers had demanded €750,000 for Everis to recover its files.

After the attack occurred, Cadena SER took all its computer systems offline so technicians could work on restoring services. According to a notice released by Cadena SER, “The SER chain has suffered this morning an attack of computer virus of the ransomware type, file encrypter, which has had a serious and widespread affectation of all its computer systems.”
