Cognizant has revealed that it was hit by the infamous Maze ransomware, suffering a severe attack that caused service disruptions to some of its clients.

Unlike other ransomware that just kicks the user out of the system after encrypting data, Maze spreads through the network while locking out the users and also exports the data to hackers’ servers, with this data later used to extract funds in case the victim decides against paying a ransom.
