The Lockbit ransomware gang has claimed the responsibility of breaching CDW and threatens to leak the stolen data.
CDW has announced that it launched an investigation into claims made by the Lockbit ransomware gang that added the company to the list of victims on its leak site.
CDW Corporation is a provider of technology solutions and services for business, government, and education. The LockBit ransomware gang demanded an $80 million ransom, but the group claims that the company only offered $1 million.
We published them because in the negotiation process a $20 billion company refuses to pay adequate money, As soon as the timer runs out you will be able to see all the information, the negotiations are over and are no longer in progress. We have refused the ridiculous amount offered.
CDW revealed that it had detected suspicious activity related to the Sirius Federal servers and quickly launched an investigation with the help of external cybersecurity experts.
Brett Callow, a threat analyst at the cybersecurity firm Emsisoft explained that the ransom demand for this case is the 3rd largest ransom demand, at least, among those that became publicly known.
The company pointed out that its systems remain fully operational.
