The Lockbit Ransomware gang has taken credit for the ransomware attack on Entrust, a digital security giant. In June, Entrust began notifying customers that they suffered a cyberattack where data was stolen from internal systems. The ransomware group attacked Entrust after purchasing access to the corporate network through “network access sellers.”

After further research on network access sellers, it appears that the number of malicious actors offering vulnerable network information have been tripling in the past few years, bringing to light the concerning fact that not only are actors aware of company breaches long before the company itself finds out, but they can use this information to operate an entire underground business, selling these highly sensitive vulnerabilities to malicious purchasers.
