Data from Kopter’s internal network has been published on the LockBit gang’s blog, hosted on the dark web.
Helicopter maker Kopter has fallen victim to a ransomware attack after hackers breached its internal network and encrypted the company’s files.
After Kopter refused to engage with the hackers, the ransomware gang has published on Friday some of the company’s files on the internet.
Many ransomware groups upload and share victim data on special “leak sites” as part of their tactics to put pressure on the hacked companies to either have them come to the negotiation table or force them into paying huge ransom demands.
LockBit ransomware gang takes credit
The Kopter data has been published on a blog hosted on the dark web and operated by the LockBit ransomware gang. Files shared on this site include business documents, internal projects, and various aerospace and defense industry standards.
