The Clop ransomware group added five new victims of MOVEit attacks to its dark web leak site, including the industrial giants Schneider Electric and Siemens Energy. Both Schneider Electric and Siemens Energy provide Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that are used in critical national infrastructure worldwide.

- Schneider Electric (http://se.com)
- Siemens Energy (http://siemens-energy.com)
- UCLA (http://ucla.edu)

For the uninitiated, Schneider Electric and Siemens Energy are two more notable victims as they are very large Industrial Control System (#ICS) vendors. Products are used in critical national infrastructure (#CNI) worldwide. 🏭⚠️ https://t.co/2mnhWMoo6s
