The Super Bowl came by and the BlackByte ransomware group claimed its target. Not only that, but the group has also attacked at least three critical infrastructure organizations in the U.S.
Super Bowl attack
The San Francisco 49ers became the victims of a BlackByte attack that temporarily disrupted the NFL team’s corporate IT network on Super Bowl Sunday. The RaaS group posted stolen internal documents to a site on the dark web. The 49ers stated that data related to its home stadium was probably not compromised. The threat actors have yet not disclosed the ransom amount and the amount of data stolen remains a mystery.
