Egg producer Lüchinger + Schmid fell victim to a cyber attack. The Suncrypt hacker group has tapped data from the Migros supplier and published some of it on the dark web.
Lüchinger + Schmid has fallen into the crosshairs of cybercriminals. As the "NZZ" (Paywall) reports, the company fell victim to a ransomware attack. Lüchinger + Schmid is an egg producer. The company belongs to Micarta, a Migros food producer.
The cyberattack took place at the beginning of March, reports the "NZZ", citing information from Migros. The damage was limited, and the company's operations were not affected. Migros itself was not hacked, the newspaper clarifies.
The hacker group Suncrypt is apparently behind the attack. As "Watson" reports, the group has published a 27-gigabyte file with tapped data on the dark web. She threatens to publish all the captured information if the blackmailed company does not enter into negotiations. According to a Migros spokesman quoted by "Watson", Suncrypt is said to have primarily stolen older data from Lüchinger + Schmid.
