Car maker Hyundai Motor Europe suffered a Black Basta ransomware attack, with the threat actors claiming to have stolen three terabytes of corporate data.
“Hyundai Motor Europe is experiencing IT issues, which the company is working to resolve as quickly as possible,” Hyundai told BleepingComputer at the time.
“Hyundai Motor Europe is investigating in a case in which an unauthorised third party has accessed a limited part of the network of Hyundai Motor Europe,” Hyundai Motor Europe told BleepingComputer.
The company did not specify what type of attack they suffered, but BleepingComputer learned the Black Basta ransomware operation conducted it in early January when they claimed to have stolen 3 TB of data from Hyundai Motor Europe.
The Black Basta ransomware gang launched its operation in April 2022 and quickly launched a stream of double-extortion attacks.
Black Basta is believed to be an offshoot of the notorious Conti ransomware operation, run by one of the previous Conti leaders.
