The ransomware group ALPHV, whose malware is known as BlackCat, claims to have breached the massively popular security camera company Ring, owned by Amazon, and is threatening to release Ring’s data.
“There's always an option to let us leak your data,” a message posted on the ransomware group’s website reads next to Ring’s logo. After publication, one person spoke about Motherboard’s article on this development in an internal Amazon Slack channel and wrote, “Do not discuss anything about this. The right security teams are engaged.”
It is unclear what specific types of data ALPHV may have access to, whether corporate or customer. Ring did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Joseph Cox and Jason Koebler / Motherboard)
