Threat group publishes alleged data from RMC following cybersecurity attack

August 31, 2020
A threat group spreading ransomware has started publishing copies of files that it allegedly copied last month from Royal Military College, reports IT World Canada. The article states that this appears to be an effort to pressure the institution into paying the group. The college and the umbrella organization Canadian Defense Academy reported a breach of security controls on July 8th, which was reportedly the result of a mass phishing campaign. A spokesperson for the Department of National Defense (DND) stated that it is assessing the extent to which the RMC’s data was compromised.   IT World Canada  (National)
