Mister Grinch, Ebenezer Scrooge, and Hans Gruber have met their match in a cybercriminal who hacked Kronos. Kronos is a payroll services company that handles tech for time cards, logging your hours, converting them over to payroll usable information, and giving you your paycheck. Kronos was attacked with ransomware by that unknown bad guy, and that means that many people who live a tight economic life are going to suffer. Worse yet, it’s Christmas time, and that means that the impact will be felt by our kids, our celebrations as we wrap up a rough year, and even donations to non-profits everywhere.

Many city governments and large companies like Whole Foods, Staples, and Tesla rely on Kronos to track their employees’ hours and payroll information
