Three Indian IT companies hacked in a single day; Stormous hacking group threatens to leak their data
A number of enterprises all across the world are being targeted by vicious ransomware assaults, according to the CloudSEK Threat Intelligence team. Money-driven threat gang has recently concentrated their attacks on Indian targets. The Arabic group responsible for the Stormous ransomware uses Telegram and its Onion website, according to CloudSEK’s earlier Stormous malware attribution analysis.
Threat actors might be able to obtain unlawful access to individual, private, and intellectual property (IP) data as a result of the information that has been made public.
Typically, the Stormous ransomware organization is interested in the secret documents and source code of its victims. Since April 11, 2022, the Stormous ransomware organization has been actively targeting Indian companies.
The threat organization regularly asks members of its Telegram channel to predict who their upcoming victim would be.

In an official statement released by the Stormous group, they say that “Three software companies have been hacked in India! there are many types of stolen data that India relied on using very old versions and other problems in its network of companies in general. You may not know the dangers of these things, but we are fighting all these vulnerabilities and we have done it three Indian companies were hacked in one day. And do not forget that we will also disable their official websites, but what is the solution? If there is a good connection between us and them, we will distribute a ransom that is not a large amount and they can pay it with one precision, but what if we are not contacted, we will publish a large part of the data on our site here and we will see according to the opinion of the rest of the companies.”
