Gen Digital Data Breach Investigation | MOVEit Ransomware

The Lyon Firm is actively involved in class action personal privacy and data theft cases and is currently investigating the Norton Lifelock – Gen Digital data breach claims for plaintiffs nationwide.

Gen Digital, the parent company of Avast, Avira, AVG, Norton, and LifeLock, has announced that certain employee personal information was compromised in the MOVEit ransomware attack.

The cyberattack exploited a zero-day vulnerability in the MOVEit Transfer managed file transfer (MFT) software, impacting a huge number of individuals.

The attack has been attributed to the Cl0p ransomware gang, which has been naming some of the victims. Cl0p, which recently exploited a zero-day in the GoAnywhere software, has added Norton LifeLock to its leak site. The compromised personal information of employees could include names, addresses, birth dates, and email addresses.

Other victims of the MOVEit attacks include the U.S. Department of Energy, Louisiana’s Office of Motor Vehicles, Oregon’s Department of Transportation, the Nova Scotia government, the British Broadcasting Company, Aer Lingus, University of Rochester, the Illinois Department of Innovation & Technology (DoIT), and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).
