ALPHV/BlackCat Ransomware Group Targets Academy Mortgage

The notorious ALPHV/BlackCat ransomware group claims to have successfully breached Academy Mortgage. The gang claims to have stolen “personal data” from the mortgage provider. Academy Mortgage has not yet confirmed the attack. If they do, they must send data breach notifications to all affected individuals.

BlackCat's Claims

BlackCat first posted Academy Mortgage to their leak site on May 14th, claiming that “we have been in your network for a long time and have had time to study your business. In addition, we have stolen your confidential data and are ready to publish it. We have your customer/partner data, personal data, finances, confidential data, and so on.”

As BlackCat is threatening to leak the stolen information, Academy Mortgage likely has refused to pay the ransom.

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
