BC International Group Targeted by Cuban Ransomware Group

The Cuban ransomware group has claimed responsibility for an attack on BC International Group, a global apparel manufacturer and distributor headquartered in Totowa, New Jersey. The company, which operates in the retail sector, has been targeted due to its vulnerabilities, which have not been disclosed in the available information.

BC International Group, with a workforce of 560 employees, specializes in fur apparel products, including fur coats and related items. The company has not disclosed any recent news or media, and its total funding amount is less than $5 million, with no recent funding rounds reported.

The attack on BC International Group is part of a broader trend of ransomware attacks on organizations worldwide, causing personal data breaches in many cases. The "No More Ransom" website, an initiative by the National High Tech Crime Unit of the Netherlands' police, Europol's European Cybercrime Centre, Kaspersky, and McAfee, aims to help victims of ransomware retrieve their encrypted data without having to pay the ransom.

The Cuban ransomware group has not disclosed the specific vulnerabilities that led to the attack on BC International Group. However, it is known that ransomware groups often exploit weaknesses in outdated software, unpatched systems, and weak passwords to gain access to networks and encrypt data.

In response to ransomware attacks, organizations are advised to implement robust cybersecurity measures, including regular software updates, employee training, and the use of multi-factor authentication. Additionally, maintaining backups of critical data and having a disaster recovery plan in place can help minimize the impact of a ransomware attack.


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.
