Leading library services firm Baker & Taylor hit by ransomware

Baker & Taylor, which describes itself as the world's largest distributor of books to libraries worldwide, today confirmed it's still working on restoring systems after being hit by ransomware more than a week ago. As Baker & Taylor said on August 23, its servers were down after an outage that impacted the company's phone systems, offices, and service centers. One day later, the library services provider revealed that disruptions to its business-critical systems stemming from the incident would persist through the week while technical teams work on restoring impacted servers.
