Garmin recovers from ransomware attack
1

My wife was affected by the Garmin outage, in that her fit-bit type thing was unable to reach the mother ship for data recording, although it still functioned as a watch. It took Garmin many days to recover, perhaps from backups. I hope they didn't pay the ransom.

Looks like the attack vector went through Javascript and PowerShell:
