Maze: The threat actors behind the Maze ransomware have returned to publicly releasing data stolen from victim companies. This return comes following a brief reprieve for victims after the group had lost their hosting provider. The threat group obtained a new hosting provider last week and has now returned to sharing portions of their victims’ data online. Over 14 GB of data stolen from the company Southwire has been published. The victims listed on the threat group’s “news” website are only a portion of their overall victims. Maze claims to only publish stolen data from their victims when they refuse to “cooperate” and pay the ransom demand. Shortly after Southwire filed a lawsuit against the operators of the Maze ransomware, the operators of Maze announced that they had planned to release 10% of the stolen data every week until the ransom is paid. In light of the lawsuit, the threat actors now say they have “something more interesting” planned but have yet to elaborate on what that means.
