Screenshots of data, allegedly stolen from the company, a common trait of many ransomware strains, has been listed on the dark web by the group. A Tandem spokesman said at this point, the company was not aware of any data breach that was notifiable under Australian law.

The screenshots include files which appear to contain financial data, personnel information, and also passport details.

The gang behind the attack has given Tandem a little more than 13 days as of today before the data would be released on the dark web.

The Tandem spokesman described the attack as being on a “localised system” and claimed it had not succeeded in encrypting data at the two key data centres where client information is stored.
