Wentworth Golf and Country Club hacked, details of 4000 members stolen in ransomware attack

Members of one of England’s most exclusive golf clubs has warned its 4000 members that their personal details may have fallen into the hands of hackers following a ransomware attack.

The prestigious private Wentworth golf and country club, whose members include high profile celebrities, sports stars, and top business people, has sent out an email offering its “profuse apologies” after its members’ list was accessed by cybercriminals.

However, according to The Telegraph, the first club members knew of the problem, was when an unauthorized message appeared on the “Wentworth at Home” internet page claiming that “your personal files are encrypted!” and demanding a Bitcoin cryptocurrency payment for a decryption key.
