GE Targeted by Meow Ransomware: Data Breach Feared

The infamous Meow ransomware group has added another big name to its victim list: GE Aerospace. In a recent announcement, the group claims to have stolen sensitive client data and internal SQL databases from the aerospace giant. Meow is now reportedly attempting to sell this stolen information for a staggering $100,000.

This news comes amidst a growing concern over ransomware attacks targeting major corporations. Meow, known for its aggressive tactics, has been linked to several high-profile attacks in the past. The group typically breaches a victim’s network, steals sensitive data, and then encrypts critical files, rendering them inaccessible. They then demand a hefty ransom payment in exchange for a decryption tool and promise not to leak the stolen information.

The specific data Meow claims to have stolen from GE Aerospace remains unclear. However, the mention of client data and SQL databases suggests the information could be highly valuable. Client data might include names, contact information, or even purchase history. If the stolen SQL databases contain proprietary information or intellectual property, the impact on GE Aerospace could be significant.

GE Aerospace has yet to officially comment on the attack. It’s important to note that Meow’s claims haven’t been independently verified. However, the group has a history of successful attacks, making their threats credible.

This incident highlights the ever-present threat of cyberattacks faced by major corporations. Companies like GE Aerospace must invest in robust cybersecurity measures to protect their data and critical infrastructure. Additionally, staying vigilant and having a well-defined incident response plan in place can be crucial in mitigating the damage caused by a ransomware attack.
