    Exclamation AXA Asia ransomware cyber incident and data leakage

    Looks like AXA Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia have been compromised by cyber criminals, customer data stolen and data encrypted with a ransom payment requested ...

    Has anyone been contacted by AXA about their personal data being leaked?

    Was just about to post this..

    Hong Kong users have been affected.

    From the FT article which everyone is citing:

    The post said the data were taken from its units in Thailand, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Malaysia, and included customers’ personally identifiable information, medical records and claims, as well as data from hospitals and doctors.

    It also included screenshots of IDs and passport pages, bank documents, hospital bills, and medical records of patients’ personal health conditions that the hackers appeared to be sharing as proof that they had compromised the company.
    The Financial Times earlier reported the attack, adding that it came after cyber criminals using ransomware called Avaddon said on Saturday that they had hacked the group’s Asia operations and stolen three terabytes of data, in a dark web post seen by the newspaper.
