  • Applied Materials will suffer multi-million dollar losses due to a cyber attack on one of its suppliers

    The ransomware attack was allegedly carried out against MKS Instruments.

    The multibillion-dollar American corporation Applied Materials is engaged in the supply of equipment, services and software for the production of semiconductor microcircuits in various areas of electronics. During a recent earnings call, the company said a ransomware attack on one of its suppliers would cost the company $250 million in the next quarter.

    Applied Materials did not say which supplier was in question, but several industry analysts said it was technology engineering company MKS Instruments, which announced on Feb. 13 that it had been hit by ransomware.

    Reportedly, MKS Instruments is still in the recovery phase. In this regard, the company was forced to postpone the income statement for the last quarter to the end of February. This is necessary to understand all the consequences of a cyber attack and determine the exact financial losses.

    “MKS continues to work diligently to restore operations at the affected facilities. The ransomware event had a significant impact in the first quarter on the company's ability to process orders, ship products, and provide services to customers across the company's Vacuum Solutions and Photonics Solutions divisions.

    At the time of publication of the news, no ransomware group has publicly claimed responsibility for this cyber incident.

    The attack on MKS Instruments highlights one concern that has been cited by various cybersecurity experts for several years now: as larger companies improve the protection of their systems, attackers are increasingly targeting smaller and weaker links in the supply chain.

    It seems that hackers understand better than any financial experts that the semiconductor industry remains one of the most important in the global economy. Disruptions in the semiconductor market could have long-term effects that affect everything from car prices to food prices.
