Carnival Cruises hit with a costly ransomware attack

  • Cruise operator Carnival Corp is the latest to fall victim to ransomware-wielding bandits. David Bernstein, chief financial officer for Carnival, told the SEC in a regulatory filing on Monday that the company had suffered from an attack that involved files being stolen. 
  • The filing says that on Aug. 15 the company “detected a ransomware attack that accessed and encrypted a portion of one brands information technology systems. The unauthorized access also included the download of certain of our data files.”
