It's always interesting when my cycling pastime and IT security work life intersect. Welcome to the new normal, I guess.

German cycle-maker Canyon Bicycles GmbG has confirmed it was the victim of a security break-in over the holiday period that has all the hallmarks of a ransomware attack with parts of the infrastructure padlocked by the perpetrators.
The digital burglars gained access to IT systems “shortly before the turn of the year”, the bike maker said in a statement: “Software and servers were encrypted and thus locked in places.”
“The attack shows massive criminal intent,” said Canyon founder and CEO Roman Arnold. “Due to the encryption of our IT infrastructure, work and business processes were temporarily massively affected.”
The CEO did say that Canyon expects delays to customer orders and delivery in the next few weeks but it making “every effort” to lessen the impact on punters “get back to normal operations as quickly as possible."
