A new ransomware group, RansomedVC, claims to have breached Sony’s computer systems. They announced this on their dark web platform, threatening to sell Sony’s data since the company refused to pay a ransom.
Sony hasn’t officially commented yet, and we should approach this with caution as it comes from criminal sources.
If true, Sony’s refusal to pay is commendable. The breach, if confirmed, adds Sony to a list of gaming companies targeted for their valuable intellectual property.
