In addition to many private users, the provider Ring also supplies small companies with cameras, surveillance systems and video doorbells. Now the Amazon subsidiary Ring can be found as a victim on the ALPHV or BlackCat leak page. 

As soon as the APT group ALPHV or BlackCat has hacked a company, it is publicly exposed on its leak page. Normally, it always says when and how much data was stolen. Because the goal of the group is always multiple blackmail. First the company is hacked and then the data is encrypted using ransomware. Before that, however, the group still transports a lot of data and puts it on its leak page for a while while it is still protected. If the victim does not pay the ransom, ALPHV publishes the data on the Internet.

Ring is listed on the leak page

Ring is currently listed as a victim on the leak page, but there is no further information about the hack and no information on the amount of data stolen. Maybe that will be handed in later. According to various online media, Ring should have no evidence of an attack on its own systems. However, ransomware could have hit a third-party provider that is managing data or a service for Ring.
