I liked that article. Precise timing would set that off.
It even ended on a good note with the infosec teams working together

Perhaps with a RAT module incorporated into the ransomware, the attackers could have at least seen what kind of data that they were working with and get a chance to demand more money or sabotage the team.  /s

Was data integrity verified?
While the ransomware hackers are generally only interested in the Bitcoins and can otherwise be very helpful in recovering your data, I have to imagine that some hackers may also take the opportunity to make changes to the data.  In this specific example, a change in the settings associated with the race track and car could result in dangerous or even deadly crashes.  In a health care environment, a change in patients' allergies could result in complications or death.

Without backups how can anyone verity the integrity of the data?  It's likely there's lots of "trusting" that the hacker didn't change any data!
