Ransomware Operators Leak Data Stolen From Wind Turbine Giant Vestas

Cyber firm criminals have leaked information recently stolen from Danish-owned Vestas Wind Systems, and the company confirmed its leak on Wednesday.

Vestas recognized the violations on November 19 and immediately began shutting down IT systems. The company confirmed in late November that it had been hit by ransomware and that violations had led to internal files being compromised.

The company said the incident did not affect the operation of the wind turbine and almost all systems had been restored by the end of November.

An investigation by Vestas suggests that the hackers did not directly understand the personal data.
