Advantech Gets Attacked By Ransomware, To Pay $14M


Chip manufacturer company Advantech – which specializes in internet-of-things (IoT) intelligent systems, embedded systems and computing, machine automation, and transportation – gets attacked by a ransomware group referred to as Consti Gang. To pressure the company into paying 750 bitcoins, which amounts to $14 million, the group has published a list of files from a stolen .zip archive on their leak site. The leaked information worth 3.03 gb is only two percent (2%) of the total amount of the data ripped off from Advantech.
