More details emerge on one of Maze Team’s victims
On January 21 and January 31, this site reported on a ransomware attack by Maze Team on CrossroadsNet or Crossroads Technologies. It wasn’t even clear who was attacked, as one entity had no web site, and none of the Crossroads Technologies entities responded to multiple inquiries by this site about the breach. Then on January 31, we found a notification from Personal Touch Home Care of Greater Portsmouth that shed a bit of light on the attack.
As I noted in that report, it was not clear whether the Portsmouth notification explained the data dumps this site had seen on Maze’s news site. One database was from the Long Island, New York area and the other database was from Michigan.
Today, HHS added 17 entries to its breach tool related to this ransomware attack. The reports were actually submitted to HHS on January 28, but were first listed publicly today. In some cases, it appears that the NY headquarters reported the incident to HHS. In other entries, it appears the local entity filed the report from their state. The following is a list of the latest additions to HHS’s breach tool with the number of patients impacted for each of the entities:
- Personal Touch Home Care of Greater Portsmouth – 1957
- Personal Touch Home Services of Dallas, Inc. – 1700
- Personal Touch Home Care of VA, Inc. – 33324
- Personal Touch Home Care of W. VA, Inc. – 1169
- Personal Touch Hospice of VA, Inc. – 1657
- Personal Touch Home Care of Mass., Inc. – 2015
- PT Home Services of San Antonio, Inc. – 5930
- Personal Touch Home-Aides, Inc. – 2633
- Personal Touch Home Care of S.E. Mass., Inc. – 2863
- Personal Touch Home Aides Inc. – 1890
- Personal Touch Home Care of PA, Inc. – 9302
- Personal Touch Home Care of Ohio, Inc. – 15808
- Personal Touch Home Aides of Baltimore, Inc. – 804
- Personal Touch Home Care of Baltimore, Inc. – 9058
- Personal Touch Home Care of KY, Inc. – 24013
- Personal Touch Home Care of Indiana, Inc. – 3593
- Personal Touch Home Aides of New York, Inc. – 38693
So far, then, there appear to be at least 156,409 impacted, although it may well be more.
Significantly, perhaps, Crossroads Technologies is no longer listed on Maze’s news site. But Maze has not responded to inquiries asking them if that means that the entity has paid ransom or not. The only data that this site knows was dumped and was likely downloaded by people were the two databases previously reported. But what happened to the rest of the data? Was it dumped or not?
