INCIDENT

The BianLian ransomware gang has added the Bilstein Group to its list of victims. At the end of April, 60 GB of internal company data appeared on the dark web, as can be seen on the monitoring site ransomware.live . This includes human resources, accounting and financial data. The auto parts specialist confirmed to CSO that there had been a recent cyber attack. “However, this was quickly discovered by our systems and IT specialists, so the impact was marginal,” explained a spokesman. The company did not want to release any further information about the case. It is not known whether there was a blackmail letter demanding a ransom.
