Medusa ransomware demands $500,000 from Kenya Airports Authority for stolen data after hacking

The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has become the latest victim of the Medusa ransomware group, who claimed responsibility for the attack on March 1st.

The hackers demanded a ransom of $500,000 (around Ksh.67.5 million) from KAA in exchange for the stolen data.

KAA has confirmed the breach, but the extent of the damage is still unknown. In addition to KAA, the hackers also claimed to have hacked Jubilee Insurance Company, making away with 662 gigabytes of data.

Cybersecurity expert Abdullahi Sheikh warned that such attacks could expose sensitive data and potentially lead to lawsuits against KAA, urging companies to set up stronger defenses against ransomware.

Ransomware has become a profitable business for cybercriminals like Medusa, who exploit system weaknesses to gain unauthorized access.
