Sony, An Alleged Victim Of Cyber Extortion

Sony, An Alleged Victim Of Cyber Extortion

Ransomed.vc has come out to claim the hack of Sony, a Japanese electronic and entertainment giant, and the fraud gang requires a ransom. 

According to screenshots pulled from the gang’s leak site, the operation has compromised “all of Sony systems [sic]”.

Sony has not come out to confirm or deny the claims but it is pretty trendy. 

In a written threat, a Ransomed.vc representative wrote that the gang did not plan to blackmail the corporation but rather wanted to sell the data.

The group also posted a file tree of the alleged data leak, although this appears to be under 6,000 files. According to the threat, they did it because Sony refused to pay. 

Ransomed.vc is a gang that has been in operation for a while. Describing what they do on their site, they wrote: 

“We offer a secure solution for addressing data security vulnerabilities within companies. As penetration testers, we seek compensation for our professional services.

“Our operations are conducted in strict compliance with GDPR and Data Privacy Laws. In cases where payment is not received, we are obligated to report a Data Privacy Law violation to the GDPR agency.”

“So far, we only have the attacker’s word that they’ve compromised Sony, and we should be cautious about believing them. Ransomware gangs boast and brag, and their relationship with the truth isn’t monogamous,” said Mark Stockley of Malwarebytes.
