A ransomware attack hit the IT operations of AXA partners in Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The Axa insurance group subsidiary, in a statement, said, “certain data processed by IPA in Thailand has been accessed.” An investigation is in the process but the damage dealt by the attack is not yet clear. Axa, recently, said that it will stop writing cyber-insurance policies in France that reimburse customers for extortion payments made to ransomware criminals.
