CDK Global cyber incident

We have had CDK back for 8 days now, temp plate/electronic filing company is up and down (still have to print temp plates by hand about 50% of the time)

The other issue is that many aux companies to CDK haven’t “plugged back in” yet fully and its still an issue


Sorry if someone posted it

CDK Pays $25 million ransom

I suspect why but as my thoughts are not proven I won’t elaborate.

Pure speculation: If you had someone on the inside who was able to damage, compromise or disrupt whatever backups/redundancies you may have had in place, I assume that would make CDK more willing to pay ransom.

Mine is more in the HR department. They didn’t need an inside man, it’s more how the MBA types treat their staff.

Edit : Speaking of HR, a job listing came up…coincidentally 1 month before the whole thing went down.
