Production Disrupted at Belgian Truckbuilder Mol after Cyberattack.

April 6, 2023


Mol Cy, the company in Belgium that builds trucks, trailers and soon also armored vehicles, was hit by a ransomware attack. A week later, the company is still rebuilding the network. According to the CEO, production was not compromised. “Supplies had just taken place and orders were in progress. Our production was of course disrupted, but in the end it did not come to a standstill. It was a bit more difficult to work at a number of workstations where computers provide information. But our staff managed to make do.” In recent days, about 50 employees have been at home for a while. “Especially our administrative staff cannot do their work without a PC and network. Unfortunately, they were temporarily unemployed.”
