Moscow recently opened its first cable-car service and promised free rides for the first month. Unfortunately, only days after after the service was made available, attackers reportedly hacked into the cable car systems and infected them with ransomware.
According to one Russian media report, the main computer for the cable car system was infected with ransomware and was demanding a ransom payment in bitcoins to decrypt the files required for the operation of the cable car.
