The Sodinokibi/REvil ransomware gang has apparently made good on its threat to auction off files it lifted from celebrity law firm Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks.

The group on July 1 reportedly placed legal documents corresponding to Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and LeBron James up for bid, with the starting price set at $600,000 per lot. The next set of auctions is set for July 3 and will include documents pertaining to entertainment and media companies Bad Boy Entertainment Holdings ($750,000), Universal ($1 million) and MTV ($1 million).

Bidders can buy all of the stolen documents from all clients for $42 million, which is the amount the attackers were demanding in ransom from the law firm, which has refused to pay.
