Toy production giant Jakks Pacific reported a cyberattack to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last week after two different ransomware gangs posted stolen information to their leak site.
On December 22, the company released a notice confirming it had suffered a ransomware attack on December 8 that encrypted their servers.
The firm – which is one of the biggest toy companies in the world thanks to licensing deals with Disney and Nintendo – hired cybersecurity experts to deal with the incident and restore their servers.
The company filed documents with the SEC in mid-December confirming the incident.
“We believe that the data that was unlawfully accessed potentially includes personal information (including names, emails, addresses, taxpayer identification numbers, and banking information of affected individuals and businesses),” the company said in a statement.
“We suggest that you immediately take appropriate protective measures to safeguard your personal and banking information. This is an ongoing investigation.”
