RRD victim of Conti Ransomware Attack
Industry: Communications & Marketing | Level: Strategic | Source: BleepingComputer
Communications company R.R. Donnelley & Sons (RRD) was the victim of a Conti ransomware attack in December 2021, filing disclosure with the SEC on December 27th, 2021. The compromise led to the shut down of the company's network in order to mitigate the attack resulting in an interruption in business operations. Initially, RRD did not identify the compromise of client data, the Conti gang claimed on January 15th that 2.5 GB of data were stolen. It appears both sides are cooperating on the ransomware, given Conti removing the leaked data from public view. The issue and impact are still developing with the following statement from RRD in its SEC filing, "At this time, however, the Company has become aware that certain of its corporate data was accessed and exfiltrated, the nature of which is being actively examined. Based on information known to date, the Company believes the access and exfiltration was in connection with the previously disclosed systems intrusion and not a new incident."
