INCIDENT: Wind Turbine Maker Hit in Cyber Attack

One of the world’s biggest wind turbine makers, Aarhus, Denmark-based Vestas Wind Systems A/S, shut down computer systems across several locations Saturday to deal with a cyber security incident.
Vestas discovered a cyber security incident Friday and has since then, together with external partners, worked to contain the situation and re-establish the integrity of its IT systems.
The company’s preliminary findings indicate the incident had an impact on parts of Vestas’ internal IT infrastructure and data has suffered compromise.
