The Week in Breach News: 03/06/24 – 03/12/24


This week: Highly sensitive data may have been exposed at CISA, another big casualty of the Infosys McCamish breach is announced, and cyberattacks leave both coffee fans and beer drinkers in Belgium thirsty.


Fidelity Investments Life Insurance Company (FILI)


Exploit: Supply Chain Data Breach

Fidelity Investments Life Insurance Company (FILI): Insurer


Risk to Business: 1.771 = Severe

Fidelity Investments Life Insurance Company (FILI) is informing about 20,000 customers that it has experienced a data breach due to a cybersecurity incident at one of its vendors, Infosys McCamish (IMS). That vendor was also responsible for the recent Bank of America data breach. In November 2023, IMS notified FILI about an unspecified “cybersecurity event” that disrupted its services. After an investigation, IMS discovered that its systems were breached between October 29 and November 2, 2023. IMS determined that the bad actor was able to obtain data stored on those systems. FILI informed customers that their stolen data may have included individual names, Social Security numbers, states of residence, bank account and routing numbers and dates of birth.

How It Could Affect Your Business: Business service providers are prime targets for cyberattacks because they often hold large stores of data without sophisticated security.


Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)


Exploit: Hacking

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA): Federal Agency


Risk to Business: 1.691 = Severe

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has disclosed that it was forced to take two servers offline after bad actors were able to breach them in February. The agency said that the cause of the trouble was vulnerabilities in Ivanti products. While CISA would not comment on which systems or what data was accessed, reports point to hackers accessing the Infrastructure Protection (IP) Gateway, which houses critical information about the interdependency of U.S. infrastructure, and the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT), which houses private sector chemical security plans. CISA said in a statement “This is a reminder that any organization can be affected by a cyber vulnerability and having an incident response plan in place is a necessary component of resilience.”

How It Could Affect Your Business: Even big players in the security space can have trouble because of an unexpected vulnerability.

South Saint Paul Public Schools


Exploit: Hacking

South Saint Paul Public Schools: Regional Education Authority


Risk to Business: 1.301 = Extreme

South Saint Paul Public Schools in Minnesota has informed parents, students and faculty that it is experiencing a cybersecurity problem that has knocked out online platforms, email and other digital services. The district said they were forced to shut some systems down after discovering an intrusion. Officials stressed that they are prioritizing ensuring that students and staff are able to maintain a productive learning environment.

How It Could Affect Your Business: Schools have been the top target for ransomware attacks for the last few years, putting sensitive student data and learning at risk.


Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC)


Exploit: Hacking

Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC): Government Agency


Risk to Business: 1.462 = Extreme

Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), Canada’s financial intelligence agency, has announced that it has had to pull its systems offline due to a cyber incident that struck over the weekend. The agency was quick to reassure the public that the incident did not involve the Centre’s intelligence or classified systems but did not further specify exactly which systems or functions were impacted. The incident remains under investigation.

How It Could Affect Your Business: Government agencies at every level are prime cyberattack targets, creating a need for sophisticated cyber defenses.

cybersecurity news represented by agauge showing severe risk


Risk to Business: 1.702 = Severe

The City of Hamilton, Canada, a municipality located about 40 miles away from Toronto, has experienced a ransomware attack that has impacted city systems and services. The attack was discovered on February 25. Critical infrastructure including water and wastewater treatment, waste collection and transit are operational but many other city services are not. Citizens must pay taxes, tickets or fines in person. Most public agencies are without phone service, and libraries are unable to offer Wi-Fi. All city council meetings before March 15 have been canceled. No ransomware gang has claimed responsibility for the attack.

How it Could Affect Your Business: Ransomware attacks that take down city governments are especially dangerous because of the potential impact on emergency services.

cybersecurity news represented by agauge showing severe risk


Risk to Business: 1.836 = Severe

Duvel Moortgat Brewery, maker of popular Belgian beer brand Duvel and abbey beers Vedett, Maredsous and La Chouffe, has been forced to take systems offline and halt beer production due to a ransomware attack on March 5. The company said that it does not know when production will restart. However, the company says that beer drinkers don’t need to worry because they have plenty of beer on hand and do not expect any impact on distribution. But residents of Breendonk, the Belgian village where Duvel Moortgat Brewery is located, are not having a very good March so far in terms of creature comforts – local coffee roasters Koffie Beyers was also hit by a cyberattack this week.

How it Could Affect Your Business: Food and drink manufacturers are critical infrastructure, and attacks on critical infrastructure targets are experiencing increased levels of ransomware risk.


UK – Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC)


Exploit: Misconfiguration

Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC): Regional Government Agency

cybersecurity news represented by agauge showing severe risk


Risk to Business: 1.566 = Severe

The Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner is investigating a data breach at the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC). The agency experienced a data breach on January 24, 2024, as a result of a misconfiguration in its third-party-supplied Registry system. The misconfiguration allowed access to non-public names and addresses. However, the stolen data did not link any individuals to registered entities or roles held. The incident is under investigation.

How it Could Affect Your Business: Human error like this is perennially the top cause of cyber trouble but that risk can be reduced dramatically by security awareness training.

The Leicester City Council says that it expects its IT systems and phone lines to be down until at least midweek after a cyberattack took out some systems on March 7, 2024. The attack snarled operations for many city services. A spokesperson said that they expect that at least some services will be restored by Wednesday. Emergency phone lines have been set up for those who need urgent assistance.   

How it Could Affect Your Business: Hackers can create a cascade of trouble for local governments and the citizens who rely on them.
