For now, unknown hackers have invaded the computer system of German technology company Citycomp and stole huge data from its customers. Citycomp's file-storage services offer a number of large and influential global companies such as Volkswagen and Porsche, software developer Oracle, Airbus aircraft maker UniCredit Bank. Hackers are now extorting Citycomp: if they do not receive redemption, they will post all promises they make.
The attack is reported by the motherboard technology media on behalf of the company Citycomp Deuter, who is developing solutions in the field of information security.
Hackers have acquired more than 300,000 different files with financial, staff, and other confidential data from Citycomp customers.
The company's services pay, among other things:
– the automobile manufacturer Volkswagen in Porsche;
– aircraft manufacturer Airbus;
– technological giants Oracle, which develops business software, a manufacturer of computers and other electronic devices Toshiba, manufacturer of telecommunications equipment Ericsson, a British telecommunications operator British Telecom, the manufacturer of photographic equipment Leica;
– a bank UniCredit, a clothing manufacturer Hugo Boss, the commercial chain Kaufland in REWEhotel chain NH Hotel Group.

Threat: If you do not pay, we will disclose everything
The perpetrators have already created a site where, at risk, they will access the file with all stolen documents if Citycomp does not pay compensation for them.
According to the Motherboard report in Deuter, Citycom did not remove the extortion, but reported the incident to police who had already started the investigation.
Files belonging to individual companies doing business with Citycomp may already be seen on a site posted by hackers, but they still can not be opened, even Motherboard writes.

Hackers do not extort for the first time
Deuter has already discovered that hackers who carried out the Citycomp attack were involved in any similar attempt at extortion.
The e-mail address sent to Citycomp for any question is actually coincident with what was recently monitoring the spread of an extradition virus.
