INCIDENT

The agency that manages Puerto Rico’s water supply has called in the FBI to investigate a cyberattack that occurred last week. The investigation into the attack on the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA), which was announced on March 19, found that customer and employee information was compromised in the incident. But officials noted that the authority’s critical infrastructure was not affected by the incident due to network segmentation.

The Vice ransomware gang leaked the passports, driver’s licenses and other documents of the impacted individuals.
