Updated Statement from MMG Fusion Regarding the December 2020 Cyberattack and Data Breach

MMG Fusion has acknowledged that the company had been the victim of a targeted cyberattack on December 21, 2020. It was ultimately ascertained that the attack not only resulted in the malicious destruction of MMG Fusion databases, but also included a breach of stored information, including demographic data such as names, phone numbers, and email addresses of end-users of the Company’s software. Not included in the extracted information was any financial data, records, or information that could be used to obtain financial information as MMG Fusion does not have access to this data.
The Company has informed us that they maintained timely, thorough communications with their customers throughout the investigation into the incident.

Due to this new information, that we have obtained and verified, we have edited our findings in this article.

Why Are American Companies Receiving The Backlash and Not The Terrorists?

Colonial Pipeline was hacked on May 7, 2021, by the RandsomeWare group DarkSide, and a few weeks later the JBS beef packing plants, were also hacked. Suddenly, the east coast of the US came to a crawl as there was a sudden gas shortage, and now the main staple of the US food supply, beef, had their plants compromised in an alleged successful hacking attempt.

Angry phone calls, emails, social media rants, etc. were made against the two companies by American citizens. Yet, there was zero-backlash against the terrorists who performed the alleged attack.

Ask yourself, what is the driving force behind pointing the finger at American-based companies with hard-working Americans as the foundation of these companies, only to be compromised, not with weapons of mass destruction, but from computer code.

Is it the media? Is it the "cybersecurity experts" who are looking to make a name for themselves during each security breach?!?! Maybe it is a combination, but whichever it is, the losers are the American companies, and thus, the American people as they suffer through higher prices and other annoyances which can greatly affect a person's quality of life.

What Was Reported And Now Confirmed

Personal Data and Personal Information: The data which was breached included, names, phone numbers, email addresses of the users of said software. However, no financial information was compromised as this was never stored nor saved.

Leaked Files: We cannot confirm the location of leaked files as our team could not locate any on the Dark Web.

Dark Web: In short, the Dark Web is the part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible if you have special software. The reason it was created was to share/sell information that has been deemed illegal in most countries. The transactions can occur as the Dark Web allows users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable This makes monitoring from law enforcement ineffective.
