Ring won’t say if it was hacked after ransomware gang claims attackReading Time: < 1 minutes
A notorious ransomware gang is threatening to leak data allegedly involving Amazon-owned video surveillance company Ring.
It’s not known what specific data ALPHV has access to, and the gang hasn’t shared any evidence of data theft.
Vice reports that the link to its report was shared in one of Amazon’s internal Slack channels along with a warning: ‘Do not discuss anything about this. The right security teams are engaged.’
Like several other ransomware groups, ALPHV doesn’t just encrypt a victim’s data but first steals it, with the goal of extorting the victim by threatening to release the stolen data.
ALPHV, often referred to as BlackCat, first gained prominence in 2021 as one of the first ransomware groups to use the Rust programming language and the first to create a search for specific data stolen from its victims. Other ALPHV victims include Bandai Namco, Swissport, and the Munster Technological University (MTU) in Ireland.
