Canadian government data leak

The Canadian government said that two of its contractors, Brookfield Global Relocation Services (BGRS) and SIRVA Worldwide Relocation & Moving Services, were hacked, resulting in the exposure of confidential information belonging to an undisclosed number of government employees. Also, data belonging to former and current employees of the Government of Canada, members of the Canadian Armed Forces and personnel of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been exposed.

Following analysis of the large volume of compromised data, specific details about the individuals affected, including the number of employees affected, remain undetermined. However, preliminary assessments suggest that those who used relocation services since 1999 may have had their personal and financial information exposed.

The LockBit ransomware gang claimed responsibility for the attack on SIRVA. The group stole 1.5 TB, which has now been leaked.
