Japanese Bicycle Manufacturer Shimano hit by Lockbit Gang
World-leading bicycle part manufacturer Shimano has suffered a major cyber attack. 4.5 terabytes of sensitive data breached including employee passport data, financial documents and confidential diagrams.
LockBit gave Shimano a 5 November deadline to pay ransom, to which it appears Shimano refused to pay, as the hacking group has listed the company’s data as published. Shimano is yet to issue a statement on the breach, but responding to media inquiries, the company said: “This is an internal matter at Shimano, and we cannot comment on anything at this time.”
