Maze Promotes Other Gang’s Stolen Data On Its Darknet Site

Doug Olenick reports:

The Maze ransomware gang is hosting and promoting data stolen by other ransomware operators on its “Maze News” website, according to IBM researchers, who are concerned this could be a sign of growing collaboration among cybercrime groups.

IBM’s X-Force IRIS team, which has been tracking Maze, tells Information Security Media Group that the ransomware syndicate may now be putting together a consortium of like-minded ransomware actors – a move that could have serious repercussions for victims.
