404 BTC ransom. We don't know if it was paid or not (my guess: it was), the apps are now back up.

It's not *exactly* "people couldn't start their cars because the manufacturer got hacked", but it's very close to that, which is so ridiculous.

Consider how much more pressure the company was under to fold to the attack, because they built business around centralized servers instead of actual customer ownership.

@waxwing Small picture: hackers demanded 404 BTC! - Big picture: ransomware is the force that pushes IT security to mainstream.

@pamaca @waxwing 501 DOGE would have done the trick too, i guess.😅

@dflate @pamaca i mean i think 402 would have fit better tbh ;)
