Why Tyler Technologies, Cognizant, Conduent And DXC Technology Were Hit With Ransomware

The cyberattack against Tyler Technologies Wednesday had all the hallmarks of the ransomware strikes that have crippled massive systems integrators across the country this year, said Vitali Kremez, one of the top ethical hackers in the US.

“That’s the flavor of the day for many breaches,” Kremez told CRN Thursday. “Criminals are not pursuing single targets, they are looking for advanced networks. They want the keys to the kingdom so they can go after other victims … No one is safe.”

The attack against Tyler Technologies, No. 46 on the 2019 CRN Solution Provider 500, comes just months after vicious ransomware infections crippled three of the world’s 20 largest solution providers – Cognizant, Conduent and DXC Technology. All told, the four solution providers who succumbed to ransomware in 2020 have combined revenue of $41.93 billion and a joint market cap of $54.36 billion.

IKOM, Nigeria—Lucy was contemplating closing early for the day when soldiers—believed to be from the Cameroon government’s notorious Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR)—stormed her shop in the northwestern Cameroon town of Bamenda at the end of August, dragged her outside, asked her to take off the shirt she was wearing, and forced her to sit on the bare ground for hours.“When I asked them what I had done wrong, one of them gave me a terrible slap and began to kick me all over my body,” Lucy, who sells foodstuffs close to a market in Bamenda, told The Daily Beast via telephone. “I thought the soldiers were going to kill me.”On the same day Lucy was brutalized by government forces in Bamenda, about 80 other women—mostly traders at the local food market—were detained at a police station

In an opening brief Friday, the proposed investor class said a Virginia federal judge got it wrong when he dismissed the suit and concluded it was based on statements that were either nonactionable, forward-looking revenue projections or nonactionable, immaterial puffery.

According to the investors, U.S. District Judge Anthony J. Trenga used “unduly harsh standards” by requiring that they plead “detailed evidentiary matter amounting to incontrovertible falsity.”
