RansomedVC claims to have access to Sony’s data – Sony Responds


A newcomer ransomware group called RansomedVC has claimed to have successfully compromised all of Sony’s computer systems. The group behind the alleged attack says it plans to sell the stolen data.

Russian Hackers RansomedVC

Cyber ​​Security Connect said the relatively new ransomware gang, which only emerged last month, “has already attacked a large number of victims”. The gang said on both the clearnet and the darknet:

“We have successfully compromised all of Sony’s systems, we will not blackmail them. We will sell the data because Sony is unwilling to pay, the data is currently available for sale.”

As of the time of publication, Sony officials have not yet responded to this. In 2011, Sony’s PlayStation Network suffered a massive breach that exposed the personal data of about 77 million accounts. It also disrupted the company’s services for almost a month.

Who is RansomedVC?

RansomedVC is a new ransomware group that has recently emerged on the dark web. Not much is known about the group, but it is believed to be a relatively new player in the ransomware game. The group has not yet been linked to any other attacks. Also, it is unclear whether they have any ties to other ransomware groups.

Sony’s Response

Sony has now responded to the claims and it askes its users to remain calm and not be disturbed because of the widespread reports. The company stated that it is on top of the matter and it is checking its systems for any possible breach. Sony assures its users that all data are safe and will not get into the hands of unscrupulous elements.


The ransomware attack on Sony is a huge breach that could have far-reaching implications for the company and its customers. Ransomware attacks have become increasingly common in recent years, and it is important for companies to take steps to protect themselves against these types of attacks. This includes implementing strong cybersecurity measures, such as firewalls, antivirus software, and employee training programs. It is also important for companies to have a plan in place in case of a ransomware attack, including regular backups of critical data and a response plan in case of an attack.
