1. Maze Operators Threaten To Dump Data From Cyber Insurance Giant

The operators of the Maze ransomware claim to have encrypted the devices on the network of cyber insurance giant Chubb in March 2020, according to BleepingComputer. Maze has not published any of the allegedly stolen data, but have included the email address of executives such as CEO Evan Greenberg, COO John Keogh, and Vice Chairman John Lupica, according to BleepingComputer.

After encrypting victims, BleepingComputer said that Maze will create an entry on its news site as a warning to the victim that if they do not pay, their data will be published. Maze told BleepingComputer last month that they weren’t providing any further details of the Chubb attack at that time.

“We are currently investigating a computer security incident that may involve unauthorized access to data held by a third-party service provider,” Chubb told BleepingComputer in a statement last month. “We are working with law enforcement and a leading cybersecurity firm as part of our investigation. We have no evidence that the incident affected Chubb’s network.”
