The Fortra GoAnywhere vulnerability has again helped hackers infiltrate the systems of the most profitable companies.
Crown Resorts, Australia's largest gaming and entertainment company, has confirmed a data breach after exploiting a GoAnywhere vulnerability. The leak was carried out by the Cl0p ransomware gang.
The Cl0p group claims the hackers stole data from the company's networks and demanded a ransom, but Crown Resorts said the data breach did not affect customers or business operations. Crown Resorts said the firm will be working with law enforcement to investigate the incident.
So far, the cybercriminals have only reported the Crown Resorts hack, but have yet to release the stolen data.
Among the victims of the Cl0p group are many well-known brands and organizations such as Procter & Gamble, Shell, Hitachi, Bombardier, Rubrik, Hatch Bank and others. Some companies were compromised by Cl0p hackers using a zero-day vulnerability in Fortra GoAnywhere. This error allowed cybercriminals to steal the data of more than 130 organizations in 10 days.
