A ransomware group has claimed responsibility for 'IT security incident' at Sun Pharma whose effect included breach of certain file systems and the theft of certain company data and personal data, the drugmaker said in a stock exchange filing. "As part of the containment measures, we proactively isolated our network and initiated the recovery process. As a result of these measures, Company’s business operations have been impacted," it said. "Consequently, revenues are expected to be reduced in some of our businesses. The Company would incur expenses in connection with the incident and the remediation."
