The victim, identified as an aerospace and defense company, recently came under suspicion of a cyber breach. A cybersecurity firm reported that a ransomware group claims to have infiltrated the company, potentially exfiltrating data pertaining to their collaboration on an Army communication system. In addition to their aerospace and defense endeavors, the company has been involved in significant deals and contracts, highlighting its stature and critical importance in the sector.
According to sources, in response to the potential breach, the company confirmed an IT "system disruption" that impacted a segmented network at a single site. There was no direct mention of any data loss due to the incident. The claiming group shared an image of an apparent blog post advertising the sale of data associated with a technological program conducted by the company. The specifics of whether any actual data theft or compromise occurred remain ambiguous. The group allegedly behind the company's breach seems to primarily focus on North American manufacturers.
