Hackers at LockBit claim that they have taken down Port of Lisbon’s website and have stolen files and data from the computer systems of the Portuguese port.
The cyber attack reportedly occurred on December 25, 2022.
The hackers threatened to publish all the port’s data which they have accessed if they do not receive US$1.5 million by January 18.
“After successful work with the Portuguese Port Authority, in our hands are all financial reports, audits, budgets, contracts, information about cargoes, ship logs with all the information on the crews, personal data of customers, all port documentation, all mail correspondence, all contracts and much more. The entire date (sic) will be published in case of failure to contact us,” the hackers wrote.
