Ransomware, Incident Response

NCB Management Services cyberattack impacts Capital One

Major U.S. bank holding firm Capital One has confirmed that over 16,500 customers had their data exposed following the February cyberattack against Pennsylvania-based debt purchasing company NCB Management Services, reports The Record, a news site by cybersecurity firm Recorded Future. Information obtained by the still-not-publicly known ransomware group included customers' addresses, Social Security numbers, account numbers, and account status, according to Capital One. Aside from Capital One, other financial institutions including Bank of America, Exeter Finance, and Pathward National Association were confirmed to have been impacted by the cyberattack. However, NCB emphasized that data stolen from its systems are no longer accessible to its attackers. NCB has been subjected to a class action lawsuit by law firm Sauder Schelkopf on behalf of affected Bank of America customers. "Our client is one of nearly half a million people who reportedly received notice that their highly sensitive information was compromised by this data breach. We look forward to seeking the appropriate relief on behalf of these individuals," said Sauder Schelkopf's Mark DeSanto.
