Costa Rica declared national emergency after massive hack


If you’ve ever needed proof that cyber attacks are a very real and devastating thing, the entire country of Costa Rica has declared a national emergency after being bombarded with digital attacks. 

Bleeping Computer reports that the Costa Rican President, Rodrigo Chaves, has officially announced a state of emergency for the nation. This comes after a huge attack from the Conti ransomware group which has ties to the Wizard Spider cybercrime syndicate responsible for many attacks including malware like Ryuk which targets hospitals. Generally speaking, these are some really bad dudes who have no plans to rescue President Chaves.
