A data breach monitoring and prevention service based in Israel says it has found a threat actor who is claiming to offer access to the Royal British Legion, a charity providing financial, social and emotional services to its members and UK armed forces veterans, for the relatively small sum of US$5000.

In a tweet, Under the Breach said the unknown threat actor was offering access through the remote desktop protocol — which means through Windows machines — and claiming that such access would yield more six terabytes of data.

Under the Breach did not mention the forum where it had obtained this information. It said that the RBL had annual income of about US$200 million.

The threat actor said the access would be with the rights of domain administrator, which means that one literally has carte blanche when it comes to accessing the server in question.

Under the Breach said it had contacted the Royal British Legion but had not yet heard back from the organisation.

The RBL has no media contacts listed on its site.
