Chilean bank shuts down all branches following ransomware attack

There’s an update to the situation with Banco Estado, noted previously on this site.  Catalin Cimpanu reports:

BancoEstado, one of Chile’s three biggest banks, was forced to shut down all branches on Monday following a ransomware attack that took place over the weekend.

“Our branches will not be operational and will remain closed today,” the bank said in a statement published on its Twitter account on Monday.

Details about the attack have not been made public, but a source close to the investigation told ZDNet that the bank’s internal network was infected with the REvil (Sodinokibi) ransomware.

As of the time of this publication, there is currently nothing on REvil’s leak site that mentions Banco Estado as a victim.
