Transport NSW documents posted on dark web after Accellion hack

Anton Nilsson reports that threat actors who have been dumping files from Accellion clients have started dumping files from Transport NSW:

Massive amounts of sensitive NSW government documents have been published online by hackers attempting to extort the authorities for cash.

The sporadic leaks to the dark web have continued in the past few days and it’s understood the files totalled some 250 gigabytes as of Wednesday.

And as the scale of the hack, which occured in December 2020, becomes clearer, questions are emerging about whether a NSW ministry failed to immediately alert the state’s cyber investigations team about what had happened.
