A Russian-linked ransomware group stole more than a terabyte of Costa Rican government data, Tech Monitor reports. Conti took credit for the attack, which targeted six Costa Rican governmental departments, including tax and customs administration and finance ministry.

The Costa Rican government website has been down since the attack took place.
