Boeing data published by Lockbit hacking gang

Boeing, a major defense and space contractor, had its internal data published online by the cybercrime gang Lockbit. Lockbit steals and releases data unless a ransom is paid. The hackers had previously threatened to release the sensitive data if Boeing didn’t pay a ransom by a certain date. According to Lockbit’s website, the data from Boeing was published on Friday. The files mostly date to late October. Boeing confirmed that parts of its business had experienced a cybersecurity incident and stated that they are investigating the incident and working with law enforcement and regulatory authorities. The company believes the event does not pose a threat to aircraft or flight safety but did not comment on whether sensitive data had been obtained by Lockbit. Lockbit ransomware has been detected worldwide and is considered one of the most professional criminal gangs. The group has targeted 1,700 U.S. organizations. The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China’s U.S. arm was also hit by a ransomware attack. Experts believe Lockbit was behind the hack. The gang’s dark web page did not mention the ICBC as a victim.
