The Olympic Club is a golf course equipped with 45 holes and designed to cater to a large number of members annually. This prestigious golf club just got hit with a major attack that may have exposed its members.
We don't have exact details, but the Olympic Club breach occurred when one person got into employee email accounts. We don't know if access was provided through a phishing attack, but it's likely that's how the usernames and passwords were obtained. Once inside the employee emails, the attacker was able to start harvesting information from the company.
After the investigation looked at the Olympic Club breach, it was determined that the attacker likely gained access to the email accounts on March 31, 2022. At that time, the person was able to start accessing confidential documents and messages. The access remained until April 27, 2022, when the company cut them off.
The club breach impacts members of the country club. If you have a membership here and you receive a letter from the company, you may be at risk of being exposed. You should avoid clicking links in any emails from people you don't know or trust, and start monitoring your financial accounts and credit for the odd activity.
The Olypic Club breach gave the attacker access to multiple employee email accounts, each holding many old documents and messages. Hundreds of files were made accessible by this attack, and many individuals could have been exposed because of it.
