BBC, BA and Boots issued with ultimatum by cyber gang Clop

A prolific cyber crime gang thought to be based in Russia has issued an ultimatum to victims of a hack that has hit organisations around the world. The Clop group posted a notice on the dark web warning those affected by the MOVEit hack to email them before 14 June or stolen data will be published. Cyber security research previously suggested Clop could be responsible for the hack which was first announced last week. Advice from experts is for individuals not to panic, and for organisations to carry out security checks issued by authorities like the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Authority in the US. Clop claims on its leak site that it has deleted any data from government, city or police services. Clop runs as a "Ransomware as a service" group, which means hackers can rent their tools to carry out attacks from anywhere.
