The BlackBasta ransomware group is claiming responsibility for targeting American Alarm and Communications (AAC), a leading security and communication solutions provider.

The group has apparently breached the systems of AAC and allegedly accessed sensitive data such as accounting, financial, and HR records, though this claim remains unverified.

The situation's severity is underscored by the inability to access the company's website, which displays a "Access is forbidden" message.  No other details about the attack are available.

There is no official response from AAC  to clarify the situation, lending some credence to BlackBasta's claims. The ambiguity surrounding the website outage, whether due to a technical issue or a cyberattack, heightens the uncertainty.
