    @T1DCarnivoreRunner How do you manually upload to strava from the watch? DH is running and hasn't messed with it yet. I think he has a 935 or maybe a 735, I have the fenix 5 too.

    TIA
    ETA I looked at it and it seems rather straight forward. Nice about garmin being down, my scale "forgets" how much I weigh daily, LOL! Any word on who is demanding the ransom? DH said china, but I think that may be a self started rumor. My bets on Apple LOL! 2020 got us again.

    @Elise4270 Rather than type it all out, I'll just post a link I found: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/jul/24/garmin-down-how-to-get-activities-on-strava-ride-swim-walk

    Obviously nobody knows for sure who is demanding the ransom. It would be easier if that was the case. It's probably some terrorist organization that wants to use the money for illicit purposes. It's best not to pay the ransom, though I know this sucks. In fairness, we don't know for sure they will get it back even if they did pay the $10M.

    No one knows anything, but the rumors seem to point to a Russian group called "Evil Corp" using ransomware packaged called WastedLocker - but since Garmin is being really good about staying tight-lipped we have no actual facts just some leaks and outside observation. It does seem likely though.

    Gramin will have to make a statement at some point, but they are in crisis damage control right now so I would not expect much anytime soon.

    Rumor is Garmin paid the ransom...

    Works but something funny with it. My camera keeps opening as I read it... beware. That’s terrible if they paid it. Couldn’t that be considered treason? Supporting terrorism?

    Yes it can, but I doubt it would be enforced in this case.

    As for the camera, odd. My browser permissions are set to block that so I did not have that issue. But if that link is trying to turn on people's camera's maybe we should have a moderator remove it.


    ETA: I reported my post and the link.

    I'm not a lawyer, but I know if they are on the Treasury dept. sanctioned lists - SDN list and such - they can't be paid by U.S. companies. But perhaps Garmin is looking at it from the legal standpoint that they don't really know who they are paying and therefore didn't knowingly pay anyone who is sanctioned. And if that is the case, why didn't they request a W-8 from the recipient before sending payment so that they would have the information they need to collect before sending payment?! Either way they want to look at it, it's likely not legal. I say "likely" because I don't truly know all the details.

    From what the article said it sounded like they paid a 3rd party to get around the sanction.

    The article didn't try to open my camera.

    I’m not seeing any evidence based on that article that ransom was paid, just that “someone” rumored it must have been because things are up now. But the more likely explanation for that is that they restored files from offline backups, given the time frame.

    Yeah, it is all rumors as Garmin has officially said nothing. We do not even have a confirmation that it was a ransomware attack.

    However, restoring from offline backups (which is what I would do over paying a ransom) would mean data loss. There is no way around it as they would have to use a backup from before the attack and that means there would be a data gap. If there is no data gap, then they found some other way to get back online. Decrypting is not possible in 4 days assuming the ransomware used a decent crypto algorithm. That means they either paid the ransom OR the ransomware rumor itself was wrong.

    But it is all speculation.

    Since they don't expect any material financial impact, and considering $10M to be financially material, I think this means they did not pay the ransom.

    Or they are saying that to prevent admitting to a crime. They could mean "10 mil is small enough we can carry on without it" or something. The only to thing to be sure is that announcement was very carefully worded by a team of experts.

    But it does seem to confirm the ransomware attack at least.

    Not likely... the materiality threshold is something determined, usually with advice and collaboration with external auditors, and isn't something that is decided on a case by case basis. I find it hard to believe that $10M would be immaterial, but I haven't looked at Garmin's financials, so I don't have anything to base that belief upon.

    But it does seem to confirm the ransomware attack at least.

    Not likely... the materiality threshold is something determined, usually with advice and collaboration with external auditors, and isn't something that is decided on a case by case basis. I find it hard to believe that $10M would be immaterial, but I haven't looked at Garmin's financials, so I don't have anything to base that belief upon.

    Maybe, but "we paid the ransom" would be admitting to a federal crime, so I would not expect to see anything suggesting that regardless of what they did.
