A moving and storage firm in the Capital Region has been targeted by a suspected ransomware assault

A moving and storage firm in the Capital Region has been targeted by a suspected ransomware assault

The hackers, who are seeking an unspecified ransom to give back the data they say they stole, claim to be the REevil group, which attacked computers of the Brazilian-based JBS meat packing conglomerate.

A prominent Capital Region moving company appears to have been hacked by the same Russian-speaking gang that two weeks ago temporarily crippled one of the nation’s largest meat-packing companies, sparking fears of shortages until its computer systems were back online.

News about the Arnoff hack has been posted on at least one dark web site, or web page. Such sites are difficult to find and often traffic in illicit activities. Bret Callow, a threat analyst with the Emsisoft anti-malware company, said the Arnoff hackers claimed they were with REevil.

The posting included an image of a $634.48 payment for a customer’s use of a 20-foot container. It also had a subcontractor’s tax identification form, or W-9 and a note saying the “all data” will be sold next week.

Hackers or ransomware thieves are known to auction off stolen credit card information on secret dark web sites. They also use cryptocurrency, which often can’t be tracked, for payments.

After restarting the website, moving company officials found text files directing them to a website telling them how to get their data back. Arnoff said there is no current indication that any data was released to the public.
