Malware disrupts Baltimore Sun Media print production

Several local newspapers owned by Tribune Publishing including The Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette, and Carroll County Times were disrupted due to the Ryuk ransomware virus according to the Baltimore Sun article located here:


“A computer virus disrupted production of The Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette, Carroll County Times and other Tribune Publishing newspapers across the country, the company said Saturday.


Print editions of The Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette and Carroll County Times were published Saturday without paid death notices and classified ads. In other markets similarly slimmed-down versions of the Saturday newspaper were published.


Tribune Publishing newspapers on Sunday continued to experience issues associated with a malware attack, which was discovered Friday, and some content likely will be missing from Monday’s papers, the Chicago-based company said, as the company investigates the attack with the assistance of the FBI and works to restore its systems.”
