Details of the BlackShadow Shirbit hack?

BlackShadow took over Shirbit’s IT infrastructure on December 1 and requested a ransom of 200 BTC. Initially, the hackers asked for 50 BTC, but the company refused to comply with the attackers’ demands. Afterward, BlackShadow announced that they would increase the amount over time.

On December 3, 2020, the attackers started to leak sensitive data. The data included employees’ and customers’ private information. Shortly after the leak, Shirbit issued the following statement:

“The company has a full backup that is not damaged, and the initial investigation shows that the information stolen will not cause damage to the company’s customers. The company has acted to protect information resources in accordance with the directives of the authorities, and is also now fully coordinated with them.”
