The Play ransomware group listed networking firm A10 Networks on its leak site after briefly gaining access to the company’s IT infrastructure, according to data breach notifications firm BetterCyber.
BetterCyber says that the leak site claims the group has “private and personal confidential data, a lot of technical documentation, agreements, employee and client documents.”
The San Jose, California-based networking hardware manufacturer earlier said it had identified a cybersecurity incident on Jan. 23, in its corporate IT infrastructure, and said the attack was not related to any of the products or solutions used by its customers.
“Upon detecting the incident, the company launched an investigation and engaged the services of cybersecurity experts and advisors, incident response professionals and external counsel to support the investigation,” the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The company in the SEC filing says it contained the attack in its network with the help of outside experts and notified the appropriate law enforcement authorities of the incident.
