Security Blueprints of Many Companies Leaked in Hack of Swedish Firm Gunnebo
Gunnebo Group, a Swedish security giant, has suffered from a cyberattack in which threat actors compromise the company network and sold valuable access to a ransomware group. After KrebsOnSecurity alerted Gunnebo to the attack in March, it claimed that it had successfully avoided a critical attack in a public statement made in August. However, KrebsOnSecurity reports that intruders stole and published sensitive information, which includes security blueprints for many of the security company’s customers.
The information exposed includes schematics of bank vaults and details of surveillance systems, meaning that this data being leaked poses a serious and viable threat to Gunnebo’s customers. It is unknown how many people gained access to the data, which was posted on a public server and consisted of 38,000 documents. Gunnebo boasts a variety of high-profile clients, including banks, government agencies, airports, casinos, jewelry stores, and nuclear power plants.
