No, Netwalker didn’t attack Chubb Insurance — or Chubb Fire and Security
Update and Correction:
Last night, DataBreaches.net reported that Netwalker threat actors claimed to have attacked Chubb Fire and Security. My reporting created more confusion than clarity, so I am removing the post altogether. Let me try to be clearer:
- Chubb Insurance has nothing to do with the current claims by Netwalker threat actors.
- Netwalker claims to have attacked Chubb Fire and Security:
- A spokesperson for Chubb Fire and Security informs DataBreaches.net that they are not the entity hit, and that Netwalker hit a business which Chubb sold in 2017 and no longer has any association with.
DataBreaches.net apologizes for any error or confusion and hopes to heck that the above is now accurate. I will update this as needed.
