Ransomware Attacks
« on: July 03, 2021, 04:35:46 AM »
A ransomware attack paralyzed the networks of at least 200 U.S. companies on Friday, according to a cybersecurity researcher whose company was responding to the incident.

Criminals targeted a software supplier called Kaseya, using its network-management package as a conduit to spread the ransomware through cloud-service providers.

The privately held Kaseya says it is based in Dublin, Ireland, with a U.S. headquarters in Miami.

T-Mobile US Inc. said an investigation confirmed about 7.8 million current users had information stolen along with more than 40 million records from past or prospective customers who’d applied for credit in a cyberattack.

The stolen information included customers’ full names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and IDs such as drivers licenses, the Bellevue, Washington-based company said in a statement on Wednesday. The hack doesn’t appear to have included credit card details or other financial information, it said.

The company said earlier this week that it was investigating claims that a widescale data breach had exposed customer details to hackers who were selling information online. The company is offering people affected by the attack two years of identity protection services and boosting security protocols on accounts that make it more difficult for fraudsters to take control.
