While Constellation is yet to provide information on who was behind the attack or how the threat actors gained access to its network, the ALPHV ransomware gang (aka BlackCat) added a new entry to its data leak site, saying that they breached the company's network and stole more than 1 TB worth of files. The ransomware gang also threatens to leak the stolen data if the company ignores the ransom demand and refuses to negotiate. "We have been on your network for a long time and have had time to analyze your business. We have stolen more than 1 TB of your confidential data. If you ignore or refuse the deal, we will be forced to release all of your data to the public," the gang said.
Canadian diversified software company Constellation Software confirmed on Thursday that some of its systems were breached by threat actors who also stole personal information and business data.
