Around January 14th, 2021, the retail giant Dairy Farm was attacked by the REvil ransomware operation. The attackers demanded a $30 million ransom. The ransomware group compromised Dairy Farm’s network and encrypted devices. Allegedly the attackers had access to information up until 7 days after the attack.
Dairy Farm is a massive pan-Asian retail chain operator that operates several grocery, convenience store, health and beauty, home furnishing and restaurant brands in Asian markets. These include Wellcome, Giant, Cold Storage, Hero, 7-Eleven, Rose Pharmacy, GNC, Mannings, Ikea, Maxims, and many more. Dairy Farm never fully confirmed the amount demanded by the attackers but did state that only 2% of the company devices were affected.
