As far as is known, the problem will affect the main branches of the company in the Netherlands and Germany. There are also reports that this attack will spread to some stores in some European countries, which will make them work.

Although all online stores are working without any visible problems, it is known that more than 3,100 servers and many workstations were affected. The affected stores are having problems with cash registers that do not accept some payment methods.

The ransomware used in this attack is the well-known ransomware Hive Ransomware, and it costs € 240 million to re-publish the data. MediaMarkt is the largest electronic equipment sales group with over 1000 stores in 13 countries. Annual revenue is approximately $ 20.8 billion.

MediaMarktSaturn Retail Group and its national organizations have been cyberattacked. The company has immediately informed the competent authorities and is working at full capacity to identify the affected systems and repair any damage caused as soon as possible. In brick-and-mortar stores, access to some services may be limited at this time.

MediaMarktSaturn remains available to its customers across all sales channels and makes every effort to make all services available again without restrictions as soon as possible.

The company will provide information on new developments on the topic.

MediaMarkt has already confirmed this issue and ensures that it is working on a solution as soon as possible. It will notify the authorities as soon as it becomes aware of the ransomware attack, and will also shut down the affected systems.
