Ransomware suspected in cyberattack that crippled major US newspapers

The Ryuk ransomware strain is the primary suspect in a cyberattack that caused printing and delivery disruptions for several major US newspapers over the weekend. The attack reportedly affected printing centers operated by Tribune Publishing and former Tribune Publishing property, the Los Angeles Times. All Tribune Publishing newspapers were impacted to some degree by the cyber-attack. The print editions of the Chicago Tribune, Lake County News-Sun, Post-Tribune, Hartford Courant, Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette, and Carroll County Times were published Saturday without paid death notices and classified ads, according to the Chicago Tribune, Hartford Courant, and Baltimore Sun. In other markets a similarly slimmed-down version of the Saturday newspaper will be delivered a day late, on Sunday, the three newspapers also reported. Former Tribune Publishing west coast newspapers the Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union Tribune --sold earlier this year, in February-- suffered similar outages.
