TLDR:

In a recent cyber attack, the notorious Medusa ransomware gang has targeted the US Federal Credit Union, resulting in the leak of sensitive personal and financial information. The threat group claims to have accessed the organization’s systems and stolen data, including names, dates of birth, ID numbers, passport numbers, driver’s license numbers, email addresses, and bank account numbers.

The attack was suspected to have occurred around the same time the credit union experienced technical difficulties in late February. The organization has not yet issued a statement regarding the breach or whether ransom discussions have begun.

Additionally, Medusa typically sends a standardized message to its victims after an attack, claiming that all files have been encrypted with a military-grade encryption algorithm, but offering to decrypt them for a fee.

This breach highlights the ongoing threat of ransomware attacks on financial institutions and the importance of cybersecurity measures to protect sensitive data.
