German logistics giant Hellmann has warned its customers and partners to be on the lookout for fraudulent calls and mail after the company was hit with a ransomware attack two weeks ago.
In an update about the cyberattack that initially forced them to remove all connections to their central data center, the company said business operations are back up and running but the “number of so-called fraudulent calls and mails has generally increased.”
“The forensic investigation has meanwhile confirmed that data was extracted from our servers before our systems were taken offline on December 9. We are currently investigating what type of data was extracted and will proactively provide further information as soon as possible. We are in regular contact with relevant government authorities,” Hellmann said.
