Italy’s postal police are investigating whether the LockBit ransomware group stole 78 gigabytes of data in an attack against the country’s tax agency.
The group allegedly published news of the hack on the dark web and asked for a ransom in five days, threatening to make the data public if the tax agency didn’t fulfill the request. However, Sogei SpA, the state company managing the tax agency’s IT infrastructure, said no signs of cyberattacks or a data breach were found after initial checks. (Antonio Vanuzzo / Bloomberg)
