April 15, 2024

INCIDENT

Netherlands-based chip manufacturer, Nexperia, suffered a cyberattack last week and ransomware attackers leaked samples of data it claims it stole from the semiconductor maker’s server.
As a result of the attack, the company said on Friday it shut down IT systems and launch an investigation to determine the scope of impact. It appears the attack came from a ransomware attack group.
In a statement, Nexperia said: “Nexperia has become aware that an unauthorized third party accessed certain Nexperia IT servers in March 2024.
“We promptly took action and disconnected the affected systems from the Internet to contain the incident and implemented extensive mitigation. We also launched an investigation with the support of third-party experts to determine the nature and scope of the incident and took strong measures to terminate the unauthorized access."
