Most recently, we wrote that the Maze ransomware allegedly managed to compromise LG Electronics and steal more than 40 GB of data from the company. Now, hackers claim to have carried out a successful attack on Xerox Corporation, having stolen more than 100 GB of data. If the company does not pay the ransom to Maze, they promise to publish the stolen information in the public domain.
Edition Bleeping computer reports that the encryptor attack seems to have occurred on June 25 of this year. Xerox Corporation has not yet confirmed or refuted the fact of compromise, but screenshots published by cybercriminals demonstrate that the data was encrypted in at least one domain of the corporation.
In total, hackers published a set of 10 screenshots that show directories lists dated June 24 and 25, shared network resources, financial documents and databases. One of the images shows that hosts on eu.xerox.net were hacked, but systems in other domains could also be affected.
Journalists note that although the domain indicates that Maze entered the Xerox European branch, the hostnames indicate that the representative office in London was damaged.
Interestingly, Maze operators have never been caught on false statements about which companies they hacked (although the scale of their attacks is sometimes exaggerated). In recent weeks, hackers have claimed that companies such as the aforementioned LG Electronics, chip maker MaxLinear, IT giant Cognizant, and Conduent have been their victims.
