Casepoint, a legal technology platform based in Virginia, US, has been hit with a ransomware attack. In a post on its data leak site, BlackCat ransomware gang claims to have stolen over 2TB of company data, including attorney files and “many other things you have tried so hard to keep.” Casepoint employees over 400 people and an annual revenue of $275 million. It works with US government agencies including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Defense, as well as major companies such as Marriott Hotels. BlackCat’s blog post, published May 30, includes sample data such as visa details, reports, and certificate. While BackCat hasn’t given a ransom deadline or amount, the post reads: “We encourage you to get in touch or we’ll start posting your data on our blog soon.” Casepoint has as yet not commented on the incident. BlackCat, also known as ALPHV, is a ransomware operation that first surfaced in November 2021. It is a possible rebrand of the DarkSide ransomware gang, which was responsible for the infamous Colonial Pipeline incident in 2021. BlackCat is somewhat of a pioneer in ransomware circles, hosting their data leak site on the public internet rather than the dark web.
