Domingues e Pinho Contadores: A Target for Ransomware Attacks

The Brazilian accounting firm Domingues e Pinho Contadores (DPC) has recently fallen victim to a ransomware attack perpetrated by the group known as vicesociety. This incident was disclosed on their dark web leak site. DPC, a stalwart in the Business Services sector for over 34 years, is recognized for its comprehensive suite of services including accounting outsourcing, business management, tax, personnel, financial management, human resources management, paralegal services, accessory obligations, due diligence, systems deployment consultancy, and process mapping. The firm boasts a client portfolio exceeding 500 companies, 65% of which are multinational entities.

With a significant footprint in Brazil, DPC maintains offices in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Macaé. It has also cultivated partnerships across major Brazilian cities through GBrasil – Grupo Brasil de Empresas de Contabilidade (Brazil Group of Accounting Companies) and extends its global reach through affiliations in 45 countries with IGAL – Intercontinental Grouping of Accountant and Lawyers. DPC's mission is anchored in delivering quality services characterized by ethical practices, respect for individuals, and a commitment to sustainability.

The ransomware attack on DPC serves as a stark reminder of the escalating cyber threats facing the Business Services sector. Ransomware attacks are not only becoming more frequent but also more sophisticated, with cybercriminals often demanding substantial ransoms for the decryption of the victim's data. This incident underscores the critical need for businesses to implement comprehensive cybersecurity measures to safeguard against such threats.


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.
