Sony confirms a data breach that affects around 7,000 employees.

Sony has disclosed the full amount of the harm caused by a cyberattack that occurred back in June; 6,791 present and former workers’ personal information was exposed. According to Bleeping Computer, the attack was carried out by the ransomware gang Clop.

The business is giving credit monitoring and identity restoration services to people who have been impacted. Sony claims that it is “not aware of publication or misuse” of any of the material that has been exposed.

The MOVEit file transfer platform from Progress Software was vulnerable to the attack. Clop was able to download private files and lead to the data leak, albeit the problem has already been fixed. It appears that the attack has an impact on much more than just Sony.

The recent intrusion of “all Sony systems” by a different ransomware outfit, Ransomed.vc, is unrelated to this incident, making the firm the victim of two cyberattacks this year—at least, publicly. Sony is “currently investigating” the Ransomed.vc incident.
