In the case of Marxan S.L., a company involved in the operation of car parks, the threat actor provided limited information, leaving the extent of the breach unclear. The deadline for compliance with their demands for Marxan S.L. is January 25, 2024, at 01:43:18 UTC.

The Cyber Express has attempted to verify these claims by reaching out to the affected organizations. As of now, there has been no official statement or response from the victims, leaving the LockBit ransomware cyberattack claims unverified.

The Rise of LockBit Ransomware Cyberattack Spree

Surprisingly, the websites of the alleged victims appear to be operational, showing no immediate signs of a LockBit ransomware attack. It is speculated that the threat actor might have targeted the databases of the companies rather than compromising the front end of their websites. This tactic aligns with previous attacks where the LockBit ransomware group targeted the databases of companies like Jasman Automotive and Subway within a 24-hour timeframe.

Adding to the complexity of the situation, LockBit has recently listed a new organization based in Taiwan, Province of China, with 1,001-5,000 employees as its victim. This organization operates in the appliances, electrical, and electronics manufacturing sectors.
