Sysco Cyberattack Exposes Employee Data

Sysco, a Texas-based food distribution corporation, has disclosed that 126,243 current and former employees may have had their sensitive data stolen in a cyberattack in January. In a notification letter sent to impacted individuals, the company said that while its systems were infiltrated on January 14th, it only discovered the breach nearly two months later. Sysco has stressed that the incident did not affect operational systems, business functions, and customer services.

"While we cannot confirm at this time specifically what information may have been impacted for each individual colleague, we believe it could include some combination of the following data: personal information provided to Sysco for payroll purposes, including name, Social Security number, account numbers or similar information," the notification letter read. Sysco is offering two years of free identity protection services to impacted individuals.

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.
