Took place? It better not have, I'm watching it at 8pm tonight.
Manchester United is working with infosec pros to "minimize the ongoing IT disruption" that it says was caused by an assault on its tech systems. The New York Stock Exchange-listed football business confirmed the incident last night but didn't clarify the technical nature of it, and refused to answer questions posed by The …
""While details of this incident are unclear, since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have seen numerous examples of hackers capitalising on the crisis by using social engineering attacks to trick their way into corporate systems."
After a deep analysis and audit it was found that there were at least three emails recivzd by upper management that contained confidential information from Nigerians offering large sums of money in return for a simple task. The audit did not successfully manage to determine who actually opened the attachment but is was noted that the high end laptop was used by someonz at the CEO level or above.
Your average Internet user can spot a Nigerian scam a mile off because the amounts of money involved are so ridiculously high.
The average football club manager or agent can spot a Nigerian scam a mile off because the amounts of money involved are so ridiculously low.
My thoughts exactly... you don't need to talk to the ICO unless there is thought to be a breach affecting the sort of data the ICO worries about - personal. And even then there are cases when it doesn't have to be notified.
"we are not currently aware of any breach of personal data associated with our fans or customers"
No need to call the ICO then...
Telling fibs or the experts they have brought in are umm not very expert?
If there is a breach, breach reporting rules are set out in article 19. You do not need to report every incident relating to a lapse in security or integrity of a trust service. However, where you have reason to believe that an incident has or is likely to have a significant (more than minimal) impact on the trust service or the personal data you hold, you need to:
- notify the ICO;
- consider whether to notify your users; and
- consider whether to inform anyone else who might be affected.
If you are not sure about whether the impact of an incident is significant or not, it is safer to report the breach.
You must notify the ICO within 24 hours of becoming aware of the breach, or sooner if it’s reasonable to do so.

Technique you say?
No amount of technical mitigations can save someone from themselves
2FA you say?
Yeah the fucking dumb muppets will provide that as well
I had to pass several tests before being allowed to be in control of a potentially dangerous weapon, the car
Meanwhile, Mike from sales and Jill from Marketing already use a computer at home so of course they know what they’re doing....
"All critical systems required for matches to take place at Old Trafford remain secure and operational," it added. As such, today's game against West Bromwich Albion took place as scheduled.
A spokesman for the club said there was nothing further to add at this stage and as such would not answer questions we asked about the variant of threat the club was forced to defend itself against.
If there is one group which needs to be shunned by society even more than people who refer to "myself", it's people who use "as such" when they mean "therefore".
It'll be ransomware and it'll be a dumb as a rock email that got them. However I await the standard declaration of it being, "a sophisticated cyber attack" and that "we take the protection of our customer's personal data very seriously".
I have the senior members of staff (the board) being phished for their credentials regularly. Will they undergo even the most basic of training for 30min? No, of course they won't; but they all take cyber security 'very seriously' and are happy for it to sit right up high on the risk register as long as nothing about it ever bothers them.
