-Data compromised

⦿ Not fully known at this time but the company disclosed that a threat actor gained access to the company's file servers (we all know what will be appearing in next week's update, don't we? 🤦‍♂️)

One piece of good news 👍:

Nothing to see here this week (sorry 😔)

One final note:

In "Updates for wk14" Hoya Corporation, Tokyo, Japan, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lenses and other optical gear had an incident which affected some production plants and the ordering system for some products. At the time little else was known. Guess what! (it's an easy guess). It was the usual double extortion - exfiltrate data and deploy ransomware, in this case for a release fee of $10 million
