Ransomware Wixawm

The Wixawm ransomware is one of a multitude of malware that has now emerged this year-end, and in the midst of this sea of new ransomware it showed itself with great strength and made one of the biggest attacks of December.

The group attacked the Spar market chain, which paralyzed more than 300 stores across England. The stores had all their IT paralyzed by the attack, some stores ran on a cash-only basis, but some had to close.

It is not known for sure what conditions the groups imposed for the release of the decryption key and the unlocking of the company’s network, but we can deduce from the size of the attack that the ransom is not very low, it could easily reach millions of dollars.

Holidays and weekends are commonly the peak days for ransomware attacks. The end-of-year festivities further confirm this maxim, as mentioned above, December is always marked with the emergence of more and more ransomware groups launching attacks to target large companies or networks such as Wixawm.
