Hacker Allegedly Sells Sensitive Data from Volvo

January 4, 2023


A threat actor is allegedly selling sensitive data, including information on vehicles the company sells to law enforcement.
Somebody has posted an ad on a popular hacking forum, claiming they are selling sensitive data of the Swedish manufacturing giant Volvo.

The threat actor behind insists that the company fell victim to a ransomware attack in late December. However, the attacker decided to sell the data instead, being convinced that Volvo would not pay the ransom. The relatively modest price set for the dataset signals the information might not be as sensitive.
