Coghlin Electrical Co. hit with ransomware attack
Monica Benevides reports:
Worcester contractor Coghlin Electrical Corp. experienced a ransomware attack on Monday [July 26], although compromised files have been recovered, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported Friday.
When reached via email by WBJ, Coghlin CEO Sue Mailman declined to expand on the situation.

Update: This incident has been added to Avos Locker’s leak site, with some proof of claims offered. The threat actors write: “Data exfiltration consisted of financial documents, invoices, bank statements, passports scans and IRS tax forms for employees and CEO Susan Marie.”
