Chubb Cyber Insurer Allegedly Hit By Maze Ransomware Attack

I find it interesting that the ransomware operator is treating this as a marketing exercise…:

Cyber insurer giant Chubb is allegedly the latest ransomware victim according to the operators of the Maze Ransomware who claim to have encrypted the company in March 2020.

Chubb is one of the leading insurance carriers in the world with an extensive line of cyber insurance products that include incident response, forensics, legal teams, and even public relations.

Ransomware is not unknown to Chubb, as in their 2019 Cyber InFocus Report Chubb explains that malware-related claims have risen by 18% in 2019, with ransomware being responsible for 40% of manufacturer’s cyber claims and 23% of cyber claims for smaller businesses.
