巴尔的摩市已被加密货币勒索软件困扰两周

本月早些时候,黑客成功地在巴尔的摩市部署了一批勒索软件。在两周的时间里,它已经导致了该市一系列重要的公共服务被关闭。外媒指出,本次攻击锁定了大约 10000 台政府计算机。虽然攻击者的真实身份不得而知,但其向政府勒索 13 个莱特币(当前市值约 10.2 万美元),否则就不予恢复设备上的正常数据。

显然,勒索软件已经让巴尔的摩全市沦为了人质,因为市政府无法访问电子邮件账户,甚至连给雇员发工资都做不到。此外,市民无法支付一系列公共事业费用,房地产相关的交易也无法顺利展开。

令人欣慰的是,市政官员表示他们无意支付这部分赎金,因为只要妥协过一次,无疑会鼓励别有用心者在未来发起更多类似的攻击。

只是在此期间,巴尔的摩市正在耗费大量的心力、以恢复基础服务的正常运行。

在数日前发布的新闻稿中,巴尔的摩市市长 Bernard Young 说到:“我们建立了一套基于 Web 的事故指挥方案,将操作转换到了手动模式,并会通过其它方案来继续向公众提供服务”

巴尔的摩市将继续调整和完善那些被中断服务的交付,同时寻求重新激活任何完全中断的服务的方法。

在恢复的过程中,我们还与 FBI 合作展开了调查,不过具体的细节还无法向大家分享。如被允许,我们将继续向公众通报相关进展。

Bernard Young 补充道:作为控制勒索软件并实施工具更新的一部分,该市正在与业内顶尖的网络安全专家合作,以确保此类事件不再发生。

至于一切恢复正常运转的时间,目前暂不得而知。不过按照估计,部分系统可能要画上几个月的时间,才能完全恢复。

正如许多大企业那样,巴尔的摩市拥有数千套系统和相关应用程序。当前的重点是让关键服务优先上线,并在期间将安全性视为首要任务之一。

市民们可在未来几周内看到部分服务开始恢复运转,但一些较复杂的系统,可能需要几个月才能彻底恢复。

实际上,这并不是巴尔的摩市首次遭遇勒索软件攻击。因为去年的时候,该市的 911 应急报警系统就曾遭遇过一次。幸运的是,这次勒索软件并没有影响到 911 系统。

至于本轮勒索软件攻击的细节,《巴尔的摩太阳报》指出,罪魁祸首是被称作 RobbinHood 的勒索软件变种。在对其展开深入研究后,专家称其是由经验丰富的编程者捣鼓出来的。
