Cylance confirms data breach linked to ‘third-party’ platform

Cybersecurity company Cylance confirmed the legitimacy of data being sold on a hacking forum, stating that it is old data stolen from a “Third-party platform.”

The data allegedly includes a substantial amount of information, such as 34,000,000 customer and employee emails and personally identifiable information belonging to Cylance customers, partners, and employees.

BlackBerry Cylance told BleepingComputer that they’re aware of and investigating the threat actor’s claims but that no “BlackBerry data and systems related to [.] customers, products, and operations have been compromised.”

“The data in question was accessed from a third-party platform unrelated to BlackBerry and appears to be from 2015-2018, predating BlackBerry’s acquisition of the Cylance product portfolio.”

While the company has yet to reply to a follow-up request for more details regarding the name of the third-party platform that was breached to steal what it claims to be old data, the same threat actor is also selling 3TB of data from automotive aftermarket parts provider Advance Auto Parts, stolen after breaching the company’s Snowflake account.
