Morley Companies has announced that it was hit with a ransomware attack last year that resulted in the sensitive information of more than 500,000 people being leaked. The organisation provides business services to dozens of Fortune 500 companies.
In a press release, the company said the ransomware attack began on August 1 and made their data “unavailable.” The company has avoided requests for comment, not explaining why it has waited until now to notify the 521,046 people affected. Some of those affected had their Social Security numbers leaked.
The company said that “current employees, former employees and various clients” have all had their information leaked. This includes names, addresses, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, client identification numbers, medical diagnostic and treatment information, and health insurance information.
