Insport has 17 stores in Sydney and is one of the larger companies in its sector.

The fact that data from Instore has been put online indicates that the company has not responded to the initial ransom demand from the attackers.

When REvil is used to attack a Windows system, the malware first exfiltrates the data to a site controlled by the attackers. After that, the data is encrypted and a ransom note generated.
