A hacking collective known as “Hacktivist” or “SiegedSec” claims to have obtained classified NATO documents after successfully infiltrating the North Atlantic Alliance’s servers. NATO has launched an investigation into the incident to determine if sensitive strategic planning and research documents were accessed.
The hacktivist group has published a portion of the stolen data on their Telegram channel to support their claims. They state that the information was obtained from the organization’s website servers three months ago.
Motel One, a budget hotel chain based in Germany, has disclosed that they fell victim to a ransomware attack. The attackers used encryption tools to compromise the hotel chain’s digital infrastructure, resulting in downtime. Data linked to 169 customer credit cards and addresses was accessed by the perpetrators. Motel One is seeking expert guidance to enhance their cybersecurity defenses.
Both the NATO and Motel One incidents are attributed to the ALPHV ransomware gang. ALPHV is a notorious double-extortion gang that has previously targeted MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment Casinos. Both companies made substantial financial contributions to secure the release of their encrypted databases.
