Cybercriminals don't care how much passion you have invested in your business.

According to research by the news portal "Watson", the largest car dealer in Europe is currently affected by a "double extortion" in connection with a hacker attack. According to IT security experts, the criminal group, which calls itself Hive, is one of the big players in the industry and is considered one of the most aggressive gangs. It also offers its extortion software to third parties ("affiliates"). This business model is called "Ransomware as a Service" (RaaS) and means that third parties can cooperate with the (anonymous) Hive backers to hack a company and extort a ransom. (Article on Watson)
