Cybercriminals Steal Nearly 1TB of Data from Miami-Based International Tech Firm

A recent cyberattack targeting a Miami-based tech firm called Intcomex has been traced back to a Russian-language hacker forum. The ransomware attack exposed almost a terabyte of financial and personally identifiable information and documents, which were leaked on the Russian forum. The stolen information includes full credit-card information, scans of sensitive documents such as passports, bank statements, financial documents, and more highly sensitive information.

Intcomex provides technology products and services to Latin America and the Caribbean. Although it is unclear when the ransomware attack occurred, the information was leaked in two parts onto the forum, on September 14 and September 20 of this year.
