Until now unknown hackers have attacked the computer system of German technology company Citycomp and stole huge data from their customers. Citycomp file storage services provide a number of large and influential global companies such as Volkswagen and Porsche, Oracle software developer, Airbus aircraft manufacturer, UniCredit Bank. Hackers are now blackmailing Citycomp: if they don't get a ransom, they'll publish all the promises they make.
Attacks are reported by motherboard technology media on behalf of the company Citycomp Deuter, who develops information security solutions.
Hackers have acquired over 300,000 different files with sensitive financial, personnel, and other types of Citycomp customer data.
Company Services apply, inter alia:
– vehicle manufacturer Volkswagen in Porsche;
– aircraft manufacturer Airbus;
– Technological giants Oraclethat develops business software, computer manufacturers and other electronic devices Toshiba, manufacturer of telecommunications equipment Ericsson, a British telecommunications operator British Telecom, a manufacturer of photographic equipment Leica;
– Bank UniCredit, clothing manufacturer Hugo Boss, chain store Kaufland in REWE, hotel chain NH Hotel Group.

Threat: If you don't pay, we'll post everything
The perpetrators have already set up a website where they will be at risk of providing access to the archive with all stolen documents, unless Citycomp pays for them.
According to a report from the motherboard in Deuter Citycom, he did not remove the blackmail, but reported the incident to the police, which had already started the investigation.
Files belonging to individual companies that do business with Citycomp can already be seen on websites posted by hackers, but they can't be opened yet, even on the motherboard.

Deuter had already discovered that the hackers who had attacked the Citycomp were involved in a similar blackmail attempt.
The email address sent to Citycomp for any question is actually the same as the one that recently tracked the spread of the release virus.
