A ransomware attack against the Israeli firm E.M.I.T Aviation Consulting is presumed to be the work of LockBit 2.0 after the group claimed responsibility for the incident. The ransomware gang has not yet published any files or sample data as proof of the successful attack, but they’ve scheduled the countdown to the reveal to end on 10/07/21. LockBit operators recently made a splash by setting up their dedicated leak site to also promote the latest variant of their ransomware and advertise the LockBit 2.0 affiliate program after hacking-related posts were banned on a number of Russian forums.

Individual Impact: No consumer PII or financial data exposure was disclosed in this breach as of press time.

Customers Impacted: Unknown

How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business Ransomware gangs don’t just want consumer data. They’re more than happy to steal trade secrets and national security-related documents too.
