Ransomware Attack: Travelex Loses 285 Bitcoin

It’s another sad event in the Crypto world as ransomware hackers successfully drag cryptocurrency in a negative way again as Travelex loses 285 Bitcoin to a Ransomware attack.

A report from WSJ has it that less than three months before the owner of the world’s largest chain of money-exchange shops unravelled in an accounting and governance scandal, it faced another challenge: It was at the mercy of ransomware hackers.

Travelex, known for its ubiquitous foreign-exchange kiosks in airports and tourist sites around the world, was shut down by a computer virus that infiltrated its networks early this year. It responded by paying the hackers the equivalent of $2.3 million, according to a person familiar with the transaction.
