Maze Ransomware Hits US Military Subcontractor Westech
The operators of Maze ransomware have hit Westech, a US military subcontractor that is involved in maintenance for the US's Minuteman III nuclear missile program. Hackers appear to have stolen sensitive nuclear missile data from Westech and have begun leaking the files online.
Maze operators continue to publish exfiltrated data in an attempt to get income irrespective of system recovery plans. Additionally, Maze operators maintain a web site of those who refuse to cooperate with their demands for payment, further complicating the recovery decision process.
