LockBit strikes once more! Two non-profit hospitals in New York have been targeted by a ransomware group, plunging them into a difficult struggle for recovery. The Scattered Spider threat group targeted yet another casino and hotel chain, unleashing a devastating ransomware attack. Caesars Entertainment’s loyalty program database was breached by the attackers. The consequences of previous data breaches have a way of haunting us in the present. Last year’s breach has led to a similar situation for LastPass users. Here are the top 10 highlights from the past 24 hours.
- In a recent cyberattack, the notorious LockBit ransomware group successfully infiltrated two prominent hospitals in New York: the Carthage Area Hospital and Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center. The aftermath of this malicious breach has gravely disrupted their crucial services, compelling them to divert patients and reschedule vital appointments.
- According to Trend Micro, the threat groups responsible for RedLine and Vidar have been employing identical techniques to propagate both ransomware and info-stealers. The attackers are using Extended Validation (EV) code signing certificates to sign the malware.
- LastPass users are in danger of falling victim to a highly persuasive phishing email, which resembles the aftermath of last year’s security breach. The email asks users to verify their personal data or risk losing access to certain features.
- The personal information of thousands of officers from Greater Manchester Police in the U.K. has been compromised due to a ransomware attack on a third-party supplier. Although sensitive details such as financial information and home addresses remained untouched, there is a possibility that the personal information of undercover officers was compromised.
