Ferrari Hacked & Ransom Demanded

The famous Italian sports car maker Ferrari has said it has been a victim of a cyber attack targeting confidential information about its customers but said it had refused a demand for ransom money.

In a statement late on Monday 20th March, the firm said "We regret to inform you of a cyber incident at Ferrari, where a threat actor was able to access a limited number of systems in our IT environment," and we are working to reinforce the security of its systems, adding that there was "no impact on the operational functions of our company... Ferrari was recently contacted by a threat actor with a ransom demand related to certain client contact details," it said. 

The hackers "had access to certain customer data such as names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers, but not bank details", a spokesman said on Tuesday 21st March. "To our knowledge, nothing has been released on the Internet for the moment. We are monitoring the situation very closely."

After it received an unspecified demand for ransom, Ferrari said it began an investigation with the help of a cyber security firm and informed the authorities.

Chief executive Benedetto Vigna has written to clients to inform them of the incident. "Ferrari takes the confidentiality of our clients very seriously and understands the significance of this incident.. As a policy, Ferrari will not be held to ransom as paying such demands funds criminal activity and enables threat actors to perpetuate their attacks." the firm said.

 In October 2022,  Ferrari denied that it was hit with a ransomware attack after a gang RansomEXX added the company to its list of victims and there remain certain undisclosed details about the attack. These  includ ethe name of the hacking group behind the attack and Frerrari does not say how much money the attackers are demanding in exchange for the customer data.
