The Wixawm ransomware is one of the numerous malware that has now emerged this end of year, 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 paralysed more than 300 shops across England. The shops had all their IT paralysed by the attack, some shops ran on a cash only basis, but some had to close.
It is not known for sure what were the conditions imposed by the groups to release the decryption key and unlock the company’s network, but we can deduce by the size of the attack that the ransom value is not even a little low, it can easily reach the million 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.
