Hackers attacked the information systems of the company “TAVR” , which operates in the Rostov region, according to the parent organization “Agrocom Group”.
By installing malicious software, servers, workstations, and enterprise information systems were attacked. In particular, we are talking about financial and economic information.
The company’s work was temporarily paralyzed, and significant economic damage was caused. An application has been submitted to law enforcement agencies on this fact. Currently, the company’s activities are carried out in a limited mode.
