In June 2022, BleepingComputer broke the story about the security giant Entrust being a victim of a ransomware attack. At the time of the original story, the threat group behind the attack was unknown. In early June, Entrust released a statement stating they were aware of the attack and would alert customers whose data was believed to have been compromised. The attack was the result of a threat group purchasing access to the network through the Darknet.
On August 18th, security researcher Dominic Alvieri reached out to BleepingComputer to alert them that LockBit had set up a data leak page on their leak site for Entrust and that stolen files are set to be released before the weekend if Entrust does not pay the ransom.
