Ransomware Group Demanding $50M In Accenture Security Breach: Cyber Firm

-

The hacker group behind a ransomware attack on global solution provider giant Accenture has made a ransom demand for $50 million, according to a cybersecurity firm that reports seeing the demand.

The threat actor is demanding the $50 million in exchange for more than 6 TB of data, according to a tweet from Cyble, a dark web and cybercrime monitoring firm.

In the attack disclosed on Wednesday, the hacker group reportedly used LockBit ransomware to target Accenture, which is No. 1 on CRN’s Solution Provider 500 for 2021. LockBit, according to New Zealand-based cybersecurity company Emsisoft, is a strain of ransomware that prevents users from accessing infected systems until a ransom payment is made.
