Abstract: The cyber attack that disrupted US newspaper offices from California to Florida has been blamed on a form of ransomware known as “Ryuk”. Little was known about why an attacker sought to upend newsrooms and production centres, ultimately delaying delivery of about a dozen newspapers across the country on Saturday. Multiple newspapers were affected because they share a production platform. Several people with knowledge of the Tribune situation blamed the attacks on Ryuk, a new form of ransomware that surfaced several months ago.
