The ThreatLocker team provides the latest stories to keep you and your customers updated on ransomware and other malicious cybersecurity threats. Here's what's new this week:
Over 1 billion CVS Health records exposed online
An online database belonging to CVS Health was exposed online. The database contained production records of visitor IDs, session IDs, device access information, and a blueprint of how the logging system operated from the backend. Search records exposed also included queries for medications, COVID-19 vaccines, and a variety of CVS products, referencing both CVS Health and CVS.com.
Most firms are facing a second ransomware attack after paying off the first one
Many businesses that pay the ransom are experiencing a subsequent ransomware attack. In a survey, nearly 50% of those who paid said some or all of their data retrieved was corrupted. The study polled 1,263 security professionals in seven markets worldwide, including 100 in Singapore, as well as respondents in Germany, France, the US, and UK. This news doesn't come as a surprise, given ransomware attacks are projected to cost $265 billion worldwide by 2031, according to Cybersecurity Ventures.
