According to Nypost, the personal information of millionsof customers of three of the largest legal firms in the nation may have been exposed as a result of a significant data theft that occurred on a worldwide scale. There is a possibility that the breach would touch more than 16 million individuals.
According to the ransomware organization Clop, which claimed responsibility for the intrusion, fifty other major businesses, including Kirkland & Ellis, K&L Gates, and Proskauer Rose, were also among the victims of the attack that took place last month. According to the findings, the legal firms were put at risk as a consequence of a flaw that existed in the MOVEit program that was used to move information. The group of hackers that go by the name “Lance Tempest” is associated with Clop, which is another name for TA505. According to the reports, there was a problem with the program throughout the weekend of Memorial Day. The gang, which is thought to have ties to Russia, often asks for millions of dollars in ransom payments.
The United States Department of State put a reward of ten million dollars on the head of the organization one month ago, seeking information that would link the organization to a foreign government.
