The ransomware gang Clop has claimed to be responsible for a cyberattack on E-Land Retail. Clop have said that they have stolen around 2 million credit card’s details over the past year, with the attack ending last month.
E-Land Retail is a subsidiary of E-Land Global, which manages a number of retail clothing stores, such as Land NC Department Store and New Core. E-land had to close 23 NC Department Store locations and a number of New Core stores. During the attack, ELand Retail claimed that customer data has not been affected by the attack as it was stored on an unaffected encrypted server. “Although this ransomware attack caused some damage to the company’s network and system, Customer information and sensitive data are encrypted on a separate server.”
