Ransomware attack hits prominent Philly consulting firm

If your company or business recently suffered a cyberattack, you’re not alone. It’s on the rise, per national analysts — and no longer limited to large outfits. Econsult Solutions, a firm whose clients include the City of Philadelphia, Pew Charitable Trusts, PennDOT and other regional institutions, suffered a ransomware attack earlier this month.

It was a pretty bad one, Jordan Levy reports, exposing employees’ personal and financial information. An investigation is underway.

What happened at Bankroll? How the luxury sports bar collapsed

It took two years and a $25 million renovation to bring Bankroll to the former Boyd Theater. But after just three months open, the venue touted as Philly’s first high-end spot for sports betting announced it was scaling back to private events only. 

The first sign of trouble, staffers told Ali Mohsen, was when Stephen Starr pulled out over “differences in philosophy.” What differences? The menu Starr designed reportedly included nachos — which the CEO apparently didn’t want. “We’re too good for nachos,” the former chef recalled her saying.
