United States: Pacific City Bank

Exploit: Ransomware

Pacific City Bank: Financial Institution

Risk to Business: 1.623 = Severe

Pacific City Bank, a California-based bank that focuses on the Korean-American community, was rocked by ransomware. The bank was hit by the AVOS Locker ransomware gang last week.

The incident is under investigation.

Customers Impacted: Unknown
