The popular SeaChange video platform is the latest victim of the Sodinokibi Ransomware gang, which is threatening to leak the stolen data.

SeaChange International, the multinational supplier of video delivery software solutions, was the victim of the Sodinokibi Ransomware gang.

The crew has published images of the data they claim to have stolen before encrypting the systems at the company.

The news was also confirmed by the experts at the data breach notification service Under the Breach.

SeaChange’s customers include the major organizations such as BBC, Cablevision, Verizon, DISH, COX, DirecTV, and COX.

Experts from BadPackets pointed out that attackers might have exploited the Pulse Secure VPN CVE-2019-11510 to compromise the company.

BadPackets reported that SeaChange had a Pulse Secure VPN server ( ) vulnerable to CVE-2019-11510 from April 24, 2019 until March 24, 2020.

Since 2019, Sodinokibi ransomware operators have been publishing data stolen from the victims on leak sites in the attempt to force the victims into paying the ransom.

Now Sodinokibi ransomware operators posted images of SeaChange’s data on the leak site, they have created a page to the company containing images of allegedly stolen documents.

These images include a screenshot of folders on a SeaChange server compromised by the gang, insurance certificates, a driver’s license, and a cover letter for a proposal sent to the Pentagon.

At the time it is not clear the amount of the ransom the gang has requested to the company.

Recently the crew behind the Sodinokibi Ransomware has started accepting the Monero cryptocurrency instead of Bitcoin to make it harder investigation by law enforcement agencies.

The gang is planning to doesn’t allow bitcoin payments in the future.

The use of the Tor anonymized network to make Monero payments makes it impossible to trace the funds and attempt to de-anonymize the threat actors behind the campaign.

Sodinokibi operators announced that they will remove Bitcoin as an accepted payment method.
