Taiwanese hardware manufacturer, GIGABYTE, is the newest victim of the cybercriminal group RansomExx. The gang is trying to leak more than 112 GB of company data if it doesn’t pay the ransom. The attack was confirmed by The Record, by phone with the company this Monday (6th). No redemption amount was informed.
According to The Record, a GIGABYTE representative said the attack did not affect the company’s production systems, just some internal servers at its Taiwan headquarters. He also informed that the company has already contacted the local authorities and that it is investigating the case.
GIGABYTE is known for producing and marketing high performance motherboards and graphics cards. So far (08/06), some pages on the company’s website are inaccessible, such as the technical support page, for example.
The company did not name the cybercriminals responsible for the attack. However, according to The Record, cybercriminal gang RansomExx is announcing that it has stolen more than 112GB of GIGABYTE data and is “ready to leak”, on his dark web page.
RansomEXX is one of the cybercriminal groups that have operated the most ransomware campaigns in recent years. Only in Brazil, are they linked to the attack that compromised the servers of the Supreme Court of Justice (STJ), in November last year and the Embraer, in December of last year.
