Attack against UK city council admitted by INC Ransom

Ongoing compromise of the UK’s Leicester City Council that began in early March has been claimed by the INC Ransom extortion operation, which admitted in a post on its leak site to have stolen 3 TB of data from the city council before immediately taking down the announcement, reports The Register. INC Ransom’s disclosure follows days after the council had most of its systems and online services, including those for schooling, social housing, Wi-Fi, waste and recycling, and birth registrations, restored following a widespread disruption on March 7.
