The Lyon Firm is investigating claims of an attack on the IT network of Homeland, Inc., which could potentially impacted tens of thousands of individuals. Contact our data breach lawyers following any notice of data breach to learn about your legal options.
On November 13, 2023, Homeland, Inc. Was allegedly added to a “victim list” of the Hunters International ransomware group, raising concerns that Homeland may have been targeted in a ransomware attack.
According to Hunters, they were able to obtain personal data files from Homeland’s computer network, which include names, Social Security numbers, phone numbers and other contact information. It is important to note that Homeland has not confirmed reports of this alleged ransomware attack.
However, if you receive a data breach notification from Homeland, or any other company, it is important to understand that you may be at an increased risk of identity theft and fraud. With even a small amount of information, cybercriminals can engage in a number of damaging, fraudulent schemes.
