The Bristol airport management refused to pay the ransomware.
Last weekend, screens at the airport in Bristol, England, were completely shut down because malware was infecting the systems that run the flight screens at the airport.
The airport management refused to pay and manually returned the screens to functional after two days. Until the return of the screens, they worked manually and actually updated the flight schedule on a board that was updated with an erasable marker.
The attack did not affect the flights themselves, but passengers were required to arrive earlier than usual to keep up with the flight conditions themselves. As far as the airport is concerned, it is not yet known how the malware was introduced into their systems, and all that remains to be said is thanks not to end with a bigger and more dangerous attack.
