Montreal’s transport system, Montreal’s Société de Transport de Montréal (STM) has been attacked with ransomware called ‘RansomExx’. On 19th October, the systems suffered from an outage which affected its IT systems, customer services and website. Although the outage didn’t impact the running of buses and metros, it did affect disabled passengers from booking door-to-door services.
STM announced on 20th October that the outage experienced the day before was in fact due to a ransomware attack on its systems. They are now working with law enforcement to track down the hacker.
