After stealing thousands of records from the UK’s famous jewelry store ‘Graff’ the ransomware group has apologized for their mistake. The matter came to light when in October the sensitive data of famous personalities including David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, etc. was disclosed by the ransomware gang “Conti”.
However, when the group was discovered leaking sensitive data from the royal families of the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, they immediately released a sorry statement on its website. According to Allan Liska, a researcher at a cybersecurity firm,
“the hackers released the statement to avoid revenge from the Arab Royal families”
In the statement, hackers clarified that “they did not yet sell or trade the data stolen from the graph, and promises to establish a robust data reviewing mechanism in the future.”We’re trying to reach Conti for further clarification however, unfortunately, the group has not yet responded after the remark was made public.
