This week has been a busy ransomware week, with ransomware attacks having a massive impact on organizations and the fallout of the MOVEit breaches to be disclosed.

BleepingComputer also exclusively broke the story that building and automation giant Johnson Controls International suffered a Dark Angels ransomware attack, with the threat actors claiming to have stolen 27 TB of data from 25 file servers.

The cyberattack was reportedly launched in Asia offices, from which the threat actors spread to the rest of the corporate network. During this time, the attackers claim to have stolen DWG files, engineering documents, databases, confidential documents, and client contracts.

Soon after BleepingComputer broke the news, Johnson Controls submitted a FORM 8-K filing with the SEC, confirming they suffered a cyberattack.

We also continue to see the effects of Clop's massive MOVEit data-theft attacks, with the National Student Clearinghouse warning of a data breach that impacted 890 schools and the BORN Ontario child registry breach impacting 3.4 million people, including patients at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).

Cybersecurity firms, journalists, and law enforcement also released interesting reports this week:
