INCIDENT

BlackCat ransomware cartel claims to have obtained Jakks Pacific data. Two weeks ago, Hive ransomware posted Jakks Pacific on their leak site. Threat actors first hacked the maker of Super Mario, Sonic, Disney Princess, and other toys in early December.

“On December 8, 2022, JAKKS experienced a ransomware attack by inserted malware into JAKKS’ computer network which locked up our servers,” the company said in a statement.
At the time, Jakks Pacific believed that threat actors accessed personal information such as names, emails, home addresses, taxpayer ID numbers, and ‘banking information.’
