Application delivery controller manufacturer A10 Networks has suffered a data breach according to BetterCyber. Play ransomware, also known as PlayCrypt, is believed to be behind the breach after A10 Networks was listed on their leak site. The group claims to have “private and personal confidential data, a lot of technical documentation, agreements, employee and client documents.” A10 Networks first noticed issues internally on January 23rd, but they claim the issue did not affect any client-facing products or services. “Upon detecting the incident, the company launched an investigation and engaged the services of cybersecurity experts and advisors, incident response professionals and external counsel to support the investigation,” A10 Networks stated in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Further details have yet to be released, so it is unclear if there is a ransom demand, but the company claims to have had proper security measures in place that allowed them to minimize the scope of the attack. All proper authorities have been made aware of the incident.
