The Cyber Express reached out to all the listed entities mentioned by the threat actor, but as of the time of reporting, no official statements or responses have been provided. Consequently, the claims regarding the Black Basta ransomware attack remain unverified.

Recent Attacks Orchestrated by the Black Basta Ransomware Group

Interestingly, the websites of the affected organizations appeared operational, showing no immediate signs of the cyber assault. This suggests that the ransomware group may have targeted the backend systems or databases rather than executing a front-end attack like DDoS or defacements.

These recent incidents highlight the growing threat posed by ransomware groups like Black Basta. In a related development, the Black Basta and Bl00dy ransomware gangs were recently implicated in a series of attacks targeting ScreenConnect servers. 

These attacks exploited a critical flaw (CVE-2024-1709), allowing threat actors to create admin accounts, delete existing users, and seize control of vulnerable instances. ConnectWise, the company behind ScreenConnect, has since released security updates to address the vulnerability.

Furthermore, in a separate incident earlier this month, Hyundai Motor Europe was hit by a Black Basta ransomware attack. The threat actors behind the attack claimed to have absconded with three terabytes of corporate data, highlighting the far-reaching impact of these cyber threats on businesses across various industries.
