A hacker tried selling stolen military drone documents for $200

Researchers at the cybersecurity firm Recorded Future recently released a report about one of its more interesting findings. 

While scouring the hacker forums on the dark web, the firm’s analysts discovered someone selling MQ-9 Reaper drone documents — maintenance books, training guides, and a list of airmen assigned to the military drone. The hacker was looking for $150-200 for the documentation. 

What we can identify from the Atlanta Cyber-attack.

The computer network of the City of Atlanta was hit by a ransomware attack which paralyzed a substantial percentage of the city’s data. The hackers demanded $50,000 to unlock the system. 

The Atlanta attack forced many city departments and organizations to go offline for several days, meaning that residents were unable to pay bills or fines and police were unable to electronically file paperwork – breathe deep, tickets were issued by hand.
