Ransomware gang deals double damage to victim by complaining to the SEC about their own attack | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

From December 15, publicly traded companies in the US will be required by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to disclose cybersecurity breaches within four working days of the incident.

The ALPHV/BlackCat ransom group has taken it upon themselves to enforce this law early, by submitting a complaint to the SEC that their breach of software company MeridianLink had not been publicly disclosed.

In the group’s report to the SEC, they stated that MeridianLink had suffered a “significant breach” that it did not disclose as required by the new rules.
