Web Host Managed.com hit by Ransomware Attack

A ransomware attack has hit managed.com. A statement on their website confirmed that “On Nov.16, the Managed.com environment was attacked by a coordinated ransomware campaign. To ensure the integrity of our customers’ data, the limited number of impacted sites were immediately taken offline. Upon further investigation and out of an abundance of caution, we took down our entire system to ensure further customer sites were not compromised.” See customer reactions below.

Many customers complain that they have been without email for days and have DNS with Managed.com so all services are offline. Some customers do not even have a backup solution so this could really be a disaster.

According to Bleeping Computer, the REvil ransomware gang is currently demanding US $500,000 from Managed.com for a decryption tool.
