Los Angeles’ Housing Authority hit by LockBit Ransomware
Los Angeles’ Housing Authority hit by LockBit Ransomware. The LockBit 3.0 has managed to compromise and exfiltrate data from the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA).
Municipal housing authorities collect and store a great deal of personal information on residents and landlords, and HACLA’s site can be used to apply for housing, pay rent, or other functions that involve personal data. The screencaps LockBit posted as proof of access suggest that this leak, if and when it happens, may affect many people who sought housing assistance from the city and may also impact employees.
