Authorities in Canada are investigating a ransomware attack that hit the network of Bell Technical Solutions, a Bell Canada subsidiary. The attack resulted in data theft. The affected servers contained “operational company and employee information.”
- The Hive Ransomware gang is taking credit for the attack. Bell Technical Solutions installs Bell services such as telephones, WiFi and cable for customers in Ontario and Quebec. Data accessed appears to also contain booked appointment information (name, address phone number.) Bell Technical Solutions will be notifying affected customers. If you’re a Bell Technical Solutions customer, be wary for unsolicited communications, attempting to get more information from you based on what was in the appointment system.
