Australian media company Nine Entertainment has restored a number of major systems affected in a network attack which was made public on 28 March but things are still not back to normal.
Australian media firm Nine Entertainment is continuing to stay mum as far as public statements on the network attack on its Sydney offices go. It is more or less certain now that Windows ransomware known as MedusaLocker was used in the attack.
In a strictly legal sense, Nine Entertainment is correct in continuing to push the notion that it has not received a ransom note after it announced on 28 March that it had fallen victim to what was described as a "cyber attack", a senior security researcher has told iTWire.
Nine Entertainment is maintaining a no-official-comment policy on the breach of its Sydney network that came to light on 28 March, but the company appears to have no objection to its staff making the wildest of claims about the incident.
Claims by Nine Entertainment newspapers that the AFP is involved in investigating a network attack on the company's Sydney offices appear to be overblown.

More Australian media deals with Google's News Showcase appear to be in the offing, aided by some government sweeteners, with a number of news publishers reported to be in discussions with the online advertising giant set to finalise agreements before the Australian Parliament passes the news media code into law.
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has said he expects to see "some significant commercial deals" between Australian news publishers and digital platforms before the government votes on its news media code which is currently before Parliament.
