Ferrari on alert after being hit by cyberattack

    The Italian outfit say their daily operations haven't been impacted, but have documents from the F1 team been stolen?


    Ferrari look to have been hit by a ransomware attack with as much as 7GB worth of data posted online.

    RansomEXX is taking credit for the breach, with internal documents, technical sheets, repair manuals and other types of information reportedly posted online according to Red Hot Cyber.

    While it’s unknown whether any data from the Ferrari Formula 1 team has been stolen, the Italian outfit says their business hasn’t been impacted by the reported breach.

    “There’s no evidence that our systems have been breached by ransomware, and our business and daily operations have not been interrupted,” said Ferrari.

    “The company is working to identity the source of the event and will take all the necessary actions.”

    Not the first time Ferrari have been attacked

    This isn’t the first time Ferrari documents have been stolen by hackers, as they were targeted in another incident earlier this year.

    Everest – another cybergang – stole documents from Speroni Spa, a company that provides components for sports cars.

    Hackers posted documents that featured projects involving Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati.
