India’s Motilal Oswal says operations unaffected by cyber incident, ET CISO

India’s Motilal Oswal says operations unaffected by cyber incident, ET CISO

India’s Motilal Oswal Financial Services said on Monday its operations were unaffected following a cyber incident last week.

The company said it had detected malicious activity on the computers of some employees and remedied the issue within an hour. The financial services company did not provide details of the attack.

“This incident has not affected any of our business operations and IT environment. It is business as usual,” the company said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

The breach was first reported last week by U.S. news website TechCrunch.

LockBit, a cybercrime group which extorts its victims by stealing and releasing data unless a ransom is paid, was responsible for the attack on Motilal Oswal, TechCrunch reported.

The group, first seen on Russian language-based cybercrime forums in 2020, has been detected all over the world, with organisations in the United States, India and Brazil among common targets, cybersecurity firm Trend Micro said last year.

Motilal Oswal services around 6 million clients and had assets of 1.27 trillion rupees ($15.30 billion) under its asset and wealth management category as of Dec. 31.

Shares in the brokerage closed 4.5% lower on Monday.

Information Security - InfoSec - Cyber Security - Firewall Providers Company in India













What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
