Ransomware Operators Publish Data Of 13 Million Customers Of Phone House Chain Stores


Phone House, a Spanish mobile phone retailer, was infected with the Babuk ransomware on April 11. No public reports were made at the time; now, the cybercriminals behind the attack have published the personal data of 13 million Phone House customers on the darknet.


As reported by Phone House, the network did not pay the ransomware, following the advice of the Spanish cybersecurity firm Hispasec, who believes that paying the ransom will only cause more attacks in the future.


The published data of Phone House customers was stolen from its servers in a cyberattack. This includes full names, dates of birth, email addresses, contact phone numbers, home addresses, nationality, bank details, passport details, and the IMEI of mobile devices purchased by customers.


“The information was partially downloaded and the leak will not affect all data processed by Phone House, but there is a possibility that some of your data has been compromised. From the outset, our internal teams, together with a leading national company, in accordance with the world's best cybersecurity practices, activated an appropriate action plan and took decisive measures to limit the scale of the cyber attack, ”the company said.
