8 million people hit by data breach at US govt contractor Maximus

U.S. government services contractor Maximus has disclosed a data breach warning that hackers stole the personal data of 8 to 11 million people during the recent MOVEit Transfer data-theft attacks.

The Clop ransomware gang added Maximus to its dark web data leak site yesterday as part of a big batch of 70 new victims, all having been breached using the MOVEit zero-day flaw.

The entry on Clop’s site claims they have stolen 169GB of data during the breach on Maximus’ MOVEit Transfer server.

As the list of MOVEit zero-day flaw victims grows and the size of the attack somewhat normalizes the large-scale data breaches that have compromised the data of hundreds of millions, the Clop ransomware gang has resorted to more aggressive extortion tactics.

Colorado State University says data breach impacts students, staff.

MOVEIt breach impacts Genworth, CalPERS as data for 3.2 million exposed.
