Shutterfly data breach confirmed

Online photography firm Shutterfly has confirmed that employee information has been compromised in a data breach resulting from a Conti ransomware attack last December, BleepingComputer reports. After infiltrating Shutterfly's network on Dec. 3, the Conti ransomware gang distributed the ransomware on Dec. 13, when the company first discovered the compromise, according to a data breach notification from Shutterfly filed with California Attorney General's Office. "The attacker both locked up some of our systems and accessed some of the data on those systems. This included access to personal information of certain people, including you," the notification said. Employees' personal data, including their names, compensation details, FMLA leave, and workers' compensation claims may have been compromised by the attack. Shutterfly has provided individuals impacted by the breach with free Equifax credit monitoring for two years. BleepingComputer had reported in December that more than 4,000 devices and 120 VMware ESXi servers from Shutterfly had been encrypted by Conti.
