The leaked data did not appear to include personal information, which generally includes a user’s identity, personal documents, login credentials, and financial information.

The 7GB of leaked data appears to be another threat, as there’s still the huge chunk of data the ransomware hackers claim to have stolen. According to The Record, Gigabyte has taken down and isolated the affected servers and is investigating the incident to find out how hackers breached the company’s system. the RansomEXX group has taken credit for the hack, and local law enforcement has been notified.
