Vx-underground is the equivalent of a library collecting source codes and documents related to malware. The organization announces that ALPHV, also known as Black Cata group of ransomware known, claims to have attacked and ransomed Bandai Namco. Vx-underground is often quite well informed, announcing attacks (such as Lapsu$, the attack on Microsoft, Nvidia and Ubisoft, a few months ago) before the companies victimized by these attacks recognize it. Bandai Namco has not yet confirmed the attack.. Ransomware monitoring group DarkFeed also shared a screenshot of the hack claimed by Black Cat:
Bandai Namco paralyzed by ransomware?
If the attack is confirmed, as with any ransomware, the principle is quite simple : the Pirates block part of Bandai Namco documentsasking them for a ransom, so a sum of money, to unlock them. We therefore imagine that the firm is currently crippled by Black Cat’s attack. Note that Bandai Namco has still not communicated on this attack, neither to confirm it nor to refute it.
