Attackers do not stop trying to push the company through and force it to pay a ransom.
According to a report published by Medibank on Dec. 1, hackers published another dump of stolen data on the dark web due to the company refusing to pay the ransom. The medical insurer states that the company's IT specialists continue to actively analyze the leaked data.
According to representatives of Medibank, while there are no signs that the financial or banking data of customers fell into the hands of hackers. As shown by the initial investigation, all six ZIP archives with leaked data contain incomplete and poorly structured information about the company's customers, which is difficult to use for various kinds of criminal fraud.
Recall that now in the hands of attackers are:
All personal data of ahm clients and a large set of health complaints;
Personal data of all foreign student clients, as well as their applications;
All personal data of Medibank clients and information about their health status.
The whole story with Medibank began on October 12, when the Medibank IT team recorded suspicious activity in their network. Then the company said that during the incident, the systems were not affected by ransomware, and all user data is safe and sound.
