Maze ransomware operators have breached the systems of the Xerox Corporation and stolen files before encrypting them.
The company did not disclose the cyberattack, but the Maze ransomware operators published some screenshots that show that a Xerox domain has been encrypted. One screenshot shows that hosts on “eu.xerox.net,” managed by Xerox Corporation, was hacked.
Another screenshot shows that the ransomware operators were in the Xerox network till June 25th, 2020.

On June 24, Maze ransomware operators included Xerox in the list of the victims published on their leak site.
“The Cyble Research Team has identified and analyzed the proof. It consists of multiple screenshots showing the compromised server(s) files and data encrypted by the ransomware.” reads the post published by threat intelligence firm. “One of the snapshot consists of a warning message stating Xerox to contact the operators within 3 days, otherwise, the information about the breach would be posted on Maze public news website. (which has been crossed and breach information posted above)”
