Attackers demand a ransom from Ferrari
Written by Emma Davis

Ferrari has received a message from attackers who claim to have infiltrated the company’s IT systems and are now demanding a ransom. The manufacturer warns customers about data leakage, including names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers.

Let me remind you that we also wrote that General Motors Users Hit by Credential Stuffing Attack, and also that Bug in Honda cars allows remotely unlock and start a car.

We regret to inform you of a cyberattack on Ferrari, during which attackers were able to gain access to a limited number of systems in our IT letters sent to Ferrari customers.

It is already known that the names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of customers fell into the hands of third parties, but while the investigation is not yet completed and it is unclear whether the leak affected payment details, bank account numbers or other sensitive payment information.

Ferrari NV reports that Ferrari SpA, its subsidiary in Italy, recently received a ransom demand from attackers linked to certain customer contact details. Upon receiving the ransom demand, we immediately launched an investigation with a leading international cybersecurity company.the company's official statement says.

It is emphasized that Ferrari has already taken all necessary measures to protect the compromised systems, and the attack did not affect the company’s work in any way.

According to our policy, Ferrari will not pay the ransom because the payment of such demands finances criminal activity and allows attackers to continue their attacks. Instead, we felt that informing our customers would be the best course of action, so we are notifying customers of the potential data breach and the nature of the incident.Ferrari said.

It is worth noting that back in October 2022, the hack group RansomEXX claimed to have successfully hacked into the automaker and claimed to have stolen 7 GB of data from Ferrari. Then the hackers said they stole a lot of documents from the company, including contracts, invoices, inside information, repair guides and much more.

Last fall, Ferrari officials told the media that the company was not investigating any ransomware attacks or cybersecurity incidents, and no disruption to business or operations had been noted.
