General Electric is investigating claims that a threat actor breached the company’s development environment in a cyberattack and leaked allegedly stolen data.
After not selling said alleged access, the threat actor posted again that they are now selling both the network access and allegedly stolen data.
In a statement to BleepingComputer, GE confirmed they are aware of the hacker’s claims and are investigating the alleged data leak.
“We are aware of claims made by a bad actor regarding GE data and are investigating these claims. We will take appropriate measures to help protect the integrity of our systems,” a GE Spokesperson told BleepingComputer.
During the hearing, Mila Kofman, Executive Director of the District of Columbia Health Benefit Exchange Authority, explained that the data was exposed through a server that was misconfigured so that it was accessible online.
