Ransomware confirmed to be the cause behind the Dish Network outage

On Tuesday 28th of February 2023, the satellite broadcast provider and TV giant Dish Network confirmed that a ransomware attack was the cause of a network and service outage over the weekend. Originally, Dish Network had blamed the outage on VPN issues. But in an 8-K form filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Dish Network stated it determined that the outage was due to a cyber-security incident and notified appropriate law enforcement authorities. They also confirmed that the threat actors stole data from its compromised systems.

“On February 27, 2023, the Corporation became aware that certain data was extracted from the Corporation’s IT systems as part of this incident. It is possible the investigation will reveal that the extracted data includes personal information,” – Dish Network.

The threat actor behind the attack is yet to be named by Dish Network, however, it is believed that the Black Basta ransomware operation is behind the attack where they first breached Boost Mobile and then the Dish corporate network.
