AU: Aged care operator’s resident data stolen and dumped in ransomware attack

Speaking of ransomware attacks in Australia, Emma Koehn reports:

ASX-listed aged care operator Regis has been hit by an international cyber attack that has led to the release of sensitive personal data, adding to the woes of the company which is battling a coronavirus outbreak at one of its Melbourne centres.

The $400 million operator told investors on Monday an “overseas third party” was responsible for an attack on its operations resulting in data being copied from its servers and publicly released. The incident has not disrupted its services, the company said.

Maze Team operators released proof of claimed hack, providing data that reveals personal information and pictures of residents. In addition to what is posted in the clear on their leak site, they also provided a zipped archive that contains an assortment of files. Many of them are nonspecific and are more general files from the facility but some do concern specific individuals.

The Regis attack is not the only health-related facility added to Maze’s leak site this week. They also added an orthopedic facility in California.
