    The attackers exploited a vulnerability in the GoAnywhere MFT software to steal the data, including customers’ names and social security numbers. Hatch Bank is providing free access to credit monitoring services for affected individuals. The Clop ransomware gang has claimed responsibility for the breach and said that it has stolen data from over 130 other organizations.

    GoAnywhere MFT has confirmed a zero-day vulnerability (CVE-2023-0669) allowing remote threat actors to access servers. This is the second confirmed data breach caused by the GoAnywhere MFT attacks, with the first one disclosed by Community Health Systems (CHS) last month. Hatch Bank has also offered the affected individuals free access to credit monitoring services for 12 months.
