FR: Morières-lès-Avignon, Douai, Würth France suffer cyber attacks

Le Dauphiné reports (translated):

Like Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, this Friday, hackers also targeted the computer system of the City of Morières-lès-Avignon. A complaint has not yet been filed but the gendarmes of the Avignon company are aware of this malicious act.

In the other case, unnamed threat actors had demanded  500,000 euros for the decryption key — the same amount demanded by DoppelPaymer in yet another case, although it’s not clear who is involved in these two cases.

Elsewhere in France last week,  the town hall of Douai also suffered cyber attack, paralyzing the telephone lines and emails of certain municipal services.  Read more about that one on La Voix du Nord.

Also of note: Würth France, the French subsidiary of the German hardware chain, experienced some unspecified problem that has impacted their system for more than one week now. They haven’t actually confirmed it was a ransomware attack, but it sure sounds like something crippled their IT system. Read more on LeMagIT.
