Belgian police faced with major data leak

The RagnarLocker ransomware has been linked to an incident in which a ransomware organisation began leaking highly sensitive data stolen from a Belgian police force in Antwerp, in what is being characterised as one of the country’s largest breaches.
‘This is a case of human error, and this is how crime reports and fine notices, but also photographs of child abuse have been leaked’, stated Chief Commissioner of Police Zwijndrecht, Marc Snels.
The number of citizens affected by the breach is unknown, but they include victims, perpetrators, witnesses, and those under surveillance, with potentially serious implications if their identities are revealed.
