UPDATE 02/09: After the alleged hacker attack on Canon USA last month, there have now been reports that 5% of the data stolen has now been leaked. Canon USA was hit with this attack by the Maze ransomware gang, with many of their services affected, including their email, Microsoft Teams, the Canon USA website and other internal applications. 

Canon USA also had 10TB of data stolen (although this appears to be internal data and not users' photos or videos). Bleeping Computer, the site that first ran the story on Canon's hack, has given an update on the situation.
