Marco A. De Felice reports:
In the past hours, another prominent name in global finance has fallen victim to a cyber attack on its IT infrastructure. This time, the Canadian company Moneris, a technology and financial firm specializing in digital payment processing and serving as a partner for leading card brands in Canada such as AlphaPay, American Express, Apple Pay, Balpex, Canadian Retail Solutions, Diners Club International, Discover Global Network, Google Pay, Interac, JCB, Mastercard, Oracle, Tulip, Union Pay, Visa, Wix, among others, has suffered the consequences.
De Felice notes that the victim has refuted claims:
On November 13th, Moneris issued a statement on its website refuting any ransom demand. The company confirmed that the cybercriminal group did not gain access to critical data, thanks to the intervention of its cybersecurity team, preventing the exfiltration of customer documents. The news of data theft and ransom demand by the ransomware group has been labeled by the Canadian company as “False Reports of Ransomware Impacting Moneris.”
