The U.K. Labour Party discloses a data breach after a service provider that manages its data was hit by a ransomware attack. The party notified relevant authorities and members that some of their information was impacted by the security breach.
The investigation is still ongoing with the help of external experts to determine the extent of the incident.
Exposed data includes information provided by members, registered and affiliated supporters, and other individuals who have provided their info to the Labour Party.
The Labour Party recommends members potentially impacted individuals to be vigilant against suspicious activity (i.e. suspicious emails, phone calls or text messages) and enable two-factor authentication (2FA) where possible.
