In an announcement posted to the Telegram platform on Saturday, March 13th, the group stated they would begin to slowly leak some documents from the company as proof and as a way to entice the company to pay the ransom. Black Shadow requested a ransom of ten Bitcoins from the company. The company has over 26,000 clients who are all at risk of having their data leaked if the company does not pay the ransom. The CEO of the company stated they are working to identify the magnitude of the attack and alerting all affected customers.
