However the Australian Federal Police Commissioner said that those responsible are in Russia and intelligence had indicated that they are likely responsible for past significant breaches in countries across the world. The ransomware group had in the last 2 days released information in two lots of files. One titled “abortions.csv” and that contains a list of Medibank customers who had undergone abortions.
