The luxury automobile firm Ferrari has suffered a cyberattack in the last few hours. Later, the company received a note demanding a ransom to recover stolen contact details of its customers. However, he has assured that, after informing the competent authorities, he will not accept the blackmail of the ‘hackers’.
“In accordance with its corporate policy, Ferrari will not accept any ransom request, since that would finance criminal activities and allow the authors of the threats to perpetuate their attacks,” the company clarified in a statement last night, which had already suffered past cataiber, although none that big.
Ferrari has continued to work non-stop
The Maranello house is a very attractive target for cybercriminals trying to substantiate information: in this case relating to customer contact details, but in general also for its designs, products and patents, which are highly valuable on the market.
Ferrari’s activities have not been blocked and regular work continues at the automobile company, which has immediately launched an investigation into the attack in collaboration with a leading global cybersecurity firm.
The “rancing horse” company immediately informed customers about the possible exposure of their data. “Ferrari takes the issue of confidentiality very seriously and understands the importance of what happened. We have partnered with experts to further strengthen our systems and we are sure they are robust,” he explained in the note.
