  On March 21th, 2018, a ransomware encrypted all customer billing data of Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN), one of the two largest energy companies in Haryana State in India. Hackers demanded a ransom of 10 million Rupees – the equivalent of 152,000 US dollars. This is not the first time that this type of virus has targeted sensitive infrastructures.
