IT recruitment firm Finite Recruitment has confirmed it experienced a cyber incident in October, which resulted in a “small subset” of the company’s data being downloaded and published on the dark web.

Finite Recruitment is listed on a leak site as one of the victims of the Conti ransomware for the purposes of double extortion. The listing shows the attackers claimed to have stolen more than 300GB of data, including financial data, contracts, customer databases with phone numbers and addresses, contracts with employees’ passport details, phone numbers, mail correspondence, and other information.

According to the incidence response team of the IT recruitment company, the cyber attack occurred in October but no part of its business operations was affected.
