Insurance Giant Chubb Might Be Ransomware VictimInsurance Giant Chubb Might Be Ransomware Victim
A ransomware operator claims to have successfully attacked Chubb Insurance databases.
March 27, 2020
Maze, a ransomware operator that typically steals information from a victim and threatens to release sensitive data, says it has successfully attacked Chubb Insurance, a company with a major presence in the cyber insurance industry.
According to a newsletter released by Maze, it has taken personally identifiable information from the insurance giant and will release information on executives and others if a ransom is not paid. (The ransom amount has not be disclosed.) Chubb has stated it is investigating a potential breach at a third-party provider; it says it has no evidence that one of its own networks was breached.
Researchers have noted that Chubb does have vulnerable components in its network infrastructure, though, again, there is no evidence that any of those devices were a point of entry.
