The Week in Breach: 12/20/19 - 12/26/19

dark webUnited States - Rooster Teeth Productions 

Exploit: Malware Attack
Rooster Teeth Productions: Entertainment Production Company

Hackers injected malware into the company’s online store that siphoned off customers’ payment details at checkout. The breach was first detected on December 2nd, and the company claims that the malware was removed on the same day. However, it’s unclear why they waited several weeks before notifying customers of the breach. Rooster Teeth Productions has sent breach notification letters to those impacted by the incident, but the episode will certainly have a negative impact on the brand’s reputation at a critical time of year for sales.

 

United States - Conway Medical Center

Exploit: Phishing Attack
Conway Medical Center: Healthcare Provider

Several employees fell for a phishing scam that provided hackers access to patients’ personal data. Although the healthcare provider quickly identified the intrusion and cut off access to those accounts, they can’t recover information already accessed by cybercriminals. As a result, Conway Medical Center will face regulatory scrutiny, which often results in fines and other penalties that can damage their reputation and profitability.

United States - Central Square Technologies 

Exploit: Malware Attack
Central Square Technologies: Technology Services Provider for Public Sector Agencies

Hackers compromised the Click2Gov payment system that allowed customers to pay their utility bills online, allowing them to siphon off payment details from customers. Specifically, the breach impacts the City of Marietta, as customers who entered payment information on the website between August 26th and October 26th may have had their credit card information stolen. However, the breach does not impact those paying in person, over the phone, or who are enrolled in the auto-pay system. Unfortunately, the company didn’t identify the breach until early December, which will complicate their recovery efforts and place customers at greater risk for data misuse
