Campbell Conroy & O’Neil P.C., a leading law firm that counts among its customers some of the world’s largest companies such as those in the Fortune 500, has been struck by a ransomware attack.
The firm first detected the attack on Feb. 27 and an investigation determined that the attack involved ransomware preventing access to certain network files. While noting July 16 that it can’t confirm that data was stolen, the firm did say that there was a rich trove of data on the targeted system.
Data potentially stolen includes names, dates of birth, driver’s license and state identification numbers, financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, payment card information, medical information, health insurance information, biometric data and online account credentials.
Campbell Conroy & O’Neil added that it has employed third-party forensic investigators and alerted the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
