a leak of internal documents online

Ferrari has announced that it has detected leaks of internal documents on the Internet. The supercar automaker is currently working hard to identify how the leak occurred, although it clarified in a statement sent to media that there was no evidence of a cyberattack.

The Maranello-based company has not experienced any disruption to its business and operations and has not detected any evidence of a breach of its system or any ransomware (ransom demand). Ferrari did not go into specifics, although it made it clear that it did not have to deal with a cyberattack despite reports coming out of Italy to the contrary.

Earlier this week, Corriere Della Sera, an Italian daily published in Milan, reported that there had been a cyberattack on Ferrari with seven gigabytes of documents, spec sheets and repair manuals made public. The alleged attack was allegedly carried out by cybergang RansomEXX. But Ferrari has not confirmed anything on this side.

“We are aware that some media have reported that there has been a disclosure of information and that some documents are available online. Ferrari has no evidence of ransomware or a breach of its systems and reports that it there was no interruption of operations. The company is working to identify the origin of this event and will implement all necessary initiatives »says an official statement from the company.

You will not have missed it, Ferrari is launching its very first SUV on the market. And although nothing can be confirmed at this stage, the cyberattack could be linked to the release of the Purosangue.

We don’t know if the leaked documents include personal data of brand employees, but Italian media report the leaks could be linked to Formula 1 team Ferrari’s decision to drop long-time sponsor Kaspersky. , a Russian software company. But there is no evidence that there is a cause and effect relationship or not.
