French telecommunications company Orange S.A. has been targeted by a ransomware attack with data stolen.
First reported July 16 by Bleeping Computer, the ransomware attack targeted Orange’s Business Services division, which offers enterprise solutions such as remote support, virtual workstations, system security, cloud backups and cloud hosting.
The ransomware attack came from the Nefilim ransomware group, which is also offering the data stolen from Orange via its data leak site. The name Nefilim is a biblical reference to the sons of God in the Old Testament. The group is also believed to be behind the ransomware attack on Australian logistics provider Toll Group in February.
