Last week the image.canon website from Canon USA suffered a service outage, fueling speculation that a ransomware attack had occurred. Although it was not clear whether the website service outage was related, the fact that a ransomware attack occurred has been confirmed. The operators behind Maze claimed responsibility for the attack, telling BleepingComputer that they had stolen over 10TB worth of data from the company. Since then, the company has admitted the attack to employees internally and began recovering systems quickly. When victims of a ransom refuse to pay, many ransomware operators like Maze now publish or sell the stolen data in some form. Maze has recently updated their website to add “5%” of the stolen data in a zip file containing marketing material, videos and files relating to Canon’s website.
