Initial reports suggest that the hackers breached the firm's email server and may have accessed years' worth of client communications. These emails contain highly confidential information not meant for public eyes.
To address the breach and mitigate the damage, the firm has brought in the cybersecurity experts from Sygnia. Currently, a thorough investigation is underway to determine the full extent of the breach and assess its potential consequences.
