A cybercrime group has leaked files stolen earlier this year from Cisco, but the networking giant stands by its initial assessment of the incident and says there is no impact to its business.
On August 10, Cisco acknowledged that it had discovered a security issue on May 24. The admission was brought on by the Yanluowang ransomware organization, which published a list of files it claimed to have stolen from Cisco and claimed to have taken gigabytes of data. The actual files that were taken from Cisco have now been made public by the hackers, and Cisco has acknowledged that they came from their systems.
The business claimed that one of its employees was the target of the assailant. It asserted that the only information taken was employee login information from Active Directory and non-sensitive files saved in a Box account.
