HWL Ebsworth, an Australian law firm, has suffered a ransomware attack. The attack, which occurred on April 28th 2023, resulted in the theft of client information and employee data. The Russia-affiliated ransomware group ALPHV/BlackCat has claimed responsibility for the attack, reportedly stealing four terabytes of company data, including client documents, financial reports, accounting data, credit card information, employee CVs and IDs as well as a network map.

HWL Ebsworth told LSJ Online that they are continuing to “investigate and gather accurate information in response to the claim that an unauthorized third party has extracted data from our firm”.

“The privacy and security of our client and employee data remains of the utmost important to us and we are in contact with clients to advise them of the situation and the steps we are taking to deal with the event,” a firm representative said.

“We acknowledge and understand the concern that this will raise for our clients and our people. Our focus remains on providing exceptional service and information to them and maintaining the high standards of our firm.

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.
