CTI Weekly: Ransomware group adds 53 companies to its leak site within 48 hours

Between March 22 and 24, the Clop ransomware group added 53 victims, mostly based in the United States, to its leak site, including Virgin Atlantic, Atos, and the City of Toronto. The campaign was likely facilitated by a flaw in Fortra’s GoAnywhere secure file transfer tool, which the group exploited to gain access to sensitive data from 130 organisations. Clop has gained notoriety for its high-impact double extortion techniques and has added 211 victims to its leak site in a short period. Organisations using the vulnerable GoAnywhere solution should patch their systems immediately to safeguard themselves from such cyber incidents.
