Η συγκεκριμένη επίθεση έχει σαν αποτέλεσμα την απώλεια δεδομένων για τους της δωρεάν δυνατότητας αποθήκευσης των 10 GB.

According to a company announcement released on subdamain, Canon's services ceased operations on July 30, 2020 for six days. The subdamain started displaying status updates from yesterday, August 4th.

BleepingComputer also published a screenshot that supposedly shows the ransom note, and as it mentions it is a Maze ransomware.

Σύμφωνα με την BleepingComputer οι hackers ισχυρίζονται ότι έχει κλέψει 10 TB δεδομένα από την Canon, “10 terabyte δεδομένων, ιδιωτικές δεδομένων κλπ.”

When they came in contact with the hacker he refused to give further information about the attack, such as the amount of ransom he is asking for, a proof of the stolen data and the extent of the attack.

Maze ransomware targets businesses, which is secretly distributed through a network, until it gains access to an administrator account and the Windows domain controller of the system.

During this process, the malware steals unencrypted files from servers and backups. He uploads the stolen files to his own servers.

Once it has collected anything of value ransomware starts running all over the network to encrypt all the devices.

If the victim does not pay the ransom, the hacker behind the attack will publicly release the stolen victim files.

Maze ransomware has hit many other high-profile victims in the past, including LG, Xerox, Conduent, MaxLinear, Cognizant, Chubb, VT San Antonio Aerospace, City of Pensacola, Florida and more. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
