    Foxconn ransomware hackers demand $34M BTC

    The cybercriminals claim to have encrypted about 1,200 servers, stolen 100 GB of unencrypted files, and deleted 20-30 TB of backups at a Foxconn facility in Mexico

    A Foxconn facility in Mexico suffered a ransomware attack over the Thanksgiving weekend. As part of the attack, cybercriminals stole unencrypted files before encrypting them to render them inaccessible to the victims. We are working with technical experts and law enforcement agencies to carry out an investigation," the company said. "The system that was affected by this incident is being thoroughly inspected and being brought back into service in phases.”
