Boeing data published by Lockbit hacking gang | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker


(Reuters) — Internal data from Boeing Co. was published online Friday by cybercrime gang Lockbit.

The hackers in October said they had obtained “a tremendous amount” of sensitive data from the aerospace giant and would dump it online if Boeing didn’t pay a ransom by Nov. 2.

According to a post on Lockbit’s website, the data from Boeing was published in the early hours of Friday. The files, which Reuters has not independently verified, mostly date to late October.

In a statement, Boeing confirmed that “elements” of the company’s parts and distribution business had experienced a cybersecurity incident.

“We are aware that, in connection with this incident, a criminal ransomware actor has released information it alleges to have taken from our systems,” Boeing said. “We continue to investigate the incident and will remain in contact with law enforcement, regulatory authorities, and potentially impacted parties, as appropriate.”

The company said it “remains confident” the event does not pose a threat to aircraft or flight safety but declined to comment on whether defense or other sensitive data had been obtained by Lockbit.

Lockbit ransomware, first seen on Russian-language-based cybercrime forums in January 2020, has been detected in various places, with organizations in the United States, India and Brazil among common targets, cybersecurity company Trend Micro said last year.

The group has hit 1,700 U.S. organizations, according to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
