INCIDENT: Ransomware Attack at German Supply Chain & Logistics Giant

A cyberattack forced Hellman Logistics to temporarily remove all connections to their central data center. The company said the shut down was having a "material impact" on their business operations. "Operations will be restored step by step, with the security and integrity of the systems as the top priority."

BleepingComputer reported last week that ransomware group RansomEXX has claimed responsibility for the attack. After negotiations with Hellmann fell apart, the group published 70.64 GB of stolen documents on their leak site that included business agreements, intra-company emails, and more, the outlet explained. They added that the leaks explained the increase in scam calls.
