Worldwide newsMay 3, 2022German library service partly blocked by a LockBit ransomware attack

EKZ Bibliotheksservice, one of the largest library services in Germany, has suffered a ransomware attack blocking eBooks, audio books, and electronic magazines. The public cannot order books and other materials from EKZ presently. The LockBit criminals have announced to have published EKZ stolen data on the dark web, presumably as the ransomware hasn’t been paid.  EKZ is providing some information to its users via its online FAQ service.
