The company claims to have detected the attack in its early stages and successfully moved to contain it, going on to say that the outage may impact employees, customers and stakeholders. This is the second hit on a German wind turbine company since the start of the Russia/Ukraine conflict and early reports say that this may be a nation-state incident.
