Panasonic Canada operations hit by cyberattack

Panasonic was hit for the second time in 6 months. This time at it’s Canada operation according to Tech Crunch. The cyber attack gang that hit Panasonic is suspected to be the work of the Conti ransomeware group. Panasonic stated “We took immediate action to address the issue with assistance from cybersecurity experts and our service providers”.

According to VX-Underground, a malware research group that collects malware samples and data, the Conti ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) group has claimed responsibility for the attack. DarkReading defines the Conti group as a Russia-based organization responsible for high-profile attacks on large enterprises as well as critical infrastructure networks — initially announced its support of Putin’s invasion.

Panasonic declined to say what data was accessed, nor how many people were impacted by the breach, but said that the incident only affected its Canadian operations
