The Unsafeleak Ransomware Attack on Barakat Travel Co.

The Unsafeleak ransomware gang has attacked Barakat Travel Co. Barakat Travel Co is a travel agent headquartered in Kuwait City, Kuwait. It was founded in 1988 and caters to individual, corporate, and leisure customers. Bakarat Travel Co employs more than 80 people. The organization also offers private jet services and partners with many organizations around the world. Bakarat Travel Co provides a range of holiday packages, including Family Vacations, Romantic Escapes, Cruises, Yachting Vacations, Beach and Resort Vacations, Spa and Wellbeing Vacations, and Wildlife and Safari Vacations.

Unsafeleak posted Bakarat Travel Co to its data leak site on December 22nd, claiming to have stolen 130GB of data but did not provide any further information. Bakarat Travel Co has neither confirmed nor denied the incident, and it is unclear whether the organization paid a ransom, contacted authorities, or took any other form of action. Middle Eastern countries rarely disclose cyber incidents, so it’s unlikely that we will find out more about this attack.

About Unsafeleak

Unsafeleak is a relatively new ransomware gang, first appearing in December 2022, which recycles leaks from other ransomware groups. Unsafe provides security blogs for cybercriminals to post victims and leaked data, as well as paid-for consultation services. As it stands, very little is known about the group.

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.
