The hackers listed Aussizz on its dark web leak site late last week, claiming to have stolen 278.91 gigabytes of data.


The group did not provide any other information regarding the attack or what information it claims to have stolen, other than a description of the company and what it does.

Aussizz offers visa and citizenship applications for Australia, as well as New Zealand, the US, the UK, and Canada, meaning the data it contains could be highly sensitive and used for further attacks and fraudulent activity.

At this stage, nothing indicates whether the attack actually occurred, whether any data was stolen, or whether Aussizz faces any material losses as a result of the incident.

Aussizz has also yet to make a statement on the incident. DragonForce has given the company until 19 April to meet its demands, indicating that ransom negotiations have likely begun.

Cyber Daily has reached out to Aussizz and will provide an update if it responds.
