Another victim has announced they’ve suffered a data breach due to Accellion’s File Transfer Appliance (FTA). The oil and gas giant Shell has made it known that an unauthorized party gained access to some of their files recently. The files included information that belonged to some Shell stakeholders and other Shell-owned companies. Fortunately, Shell’s core network has not been affected due to its isolation from other portions of the infrastructure. The company has begun working with its cybersecurity team to help identify and understand the totality of the attack and how it may have been prevented. All affected parties have been notified up to this point and data regulators and authorities have also been notified.
