Italian sports car maker Ferrari said on Monday that a threat actor had demanded a ransom related to customer contact details that may have been exposed in a ransomware attack.
“Upon receipt of the ransom demand, we immediately started an investigation in collaboration with a leading global third-party cybersecurity firm,” the iconic car maker said. “In addition, we informed the relevant authorities and are confident they will investigate to the full extent of the law.”
The company did not say when the incident occurred, but it could be related to reports of a ransomware attack back in October 2022, when the “RansomEXX” group claimed it had stolen and leaked 7 GB of data from Ferrari—which Ferrari denied at the time.
