More than half billion euros is the ransom asked by hackers, it occurs an informatic attack to servers of the Territorial Agency for the House of Turin

An informatic attack occurred on the weekend and it has been discovered by technical on Monday 11th of April 2021, which has crashed the ATC Turin servers (Territorial Agency for the House of Turin), the public company which manages more than 30.000 apartments of social housing. Hackers asked to the owner a ransom of 700.000 dollars in order to have back the stolen and encrypted data.

Technical of the company are working on trying to restore by using the backups, but actually the website is still non-working and restore operation and consequently inconveniences will be longer than expected, like it is suggested by the same ATC: “the among of the attack was so fast that we are not able to communicate the recovery time. It is about 43 terabytes of data”.

According to the news shared by many local newspapers, the employees have received a mail with a request of the high amount of dollars which are 584.000 euros, a message that would self-destruct after the reading without any evidences, this is way seems to be behind an ransomware attack carried out by professionals.

The data breach has been reported to the Postal police and regularly notified to the Italian Data Protection Authority, but it seems to be that ATC has not any intention to pay the ransom and resist to hacker’s requests, even if in the meantime the employees are now using paper and pencil and they are sharing file with the FAX.

While we are waiting that the company solves problems and restore the data on the server, in the next few days users shall be patient against outages, and it will not easy for ATC Turin gets back managing the ordinary activity of the website, and so user’s services, including payments and consultations.
