BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
(Reuters) — Swiss online consumer outlet Comparis has filed a criminal complaint over a ransomware attack Wednesday that blocked some of its information technology systems, it said Friday.
“As far as we know, most databases do not seem to be affected by the incident. Unfortunately, first detailed analyses suggest that the perpetrators had access to certain customer-relevant data of sister company Credaris, whose systems are partly operated in the same server environment,” it said.
Credaris is a financial brokerage.
Comparis said its website — which lets consumers compare prices for goods and services — was working normally again, but access via e-mail and customer hotline may still be limited as it works with cybersecurity specialists on a complete recovery.
It did not comment on whether the incident was linked to a ransomware attack centered on the Florida information technology company Kaseya that scrambled the data of hundreds of small businesses worldwide. REvil, a prolific, Russia-linked cybercrime syndicate, took credit for the breach.
Comparis did not pay a ransom to regain functionality, a spokesperson said.
