Meyer Corporation Ransomware Attack

Industry: Manufacturing | Level: Strategic | Sources: BleepingComputer & NotificationLetter

On October 25th, 2021, Meyer Corporation, a cookware distributor, suffered a ransomware attack, reported by BleepingComputer. Review of the incident was completed on December 1st, 2021, identifying the compromise of employee data. Meyer Corporation subsidiaries "Hestan Commercial Corporation, Hestan Smart Cooking, Hestan Vineyards, and Blue Mountain Enterprises, LLC" employee data was also compromised. Information from the breach included names, addresses, date of birth, social security numbers, passports, government ID numbers and more. Meyer Corporation's data breach notification doesn't contain specific details regarding the attack however, BleepingComputer identified from Conti's extortion site a entry on November 7th, 2021 that coincides with the attack timeline. The site contained 2% of alleged Meyer's data that was stolen however since the posting, there is no additional follow-up with potential outcomes being "either an indication of their willingness to negotiate indefinitely or due to losing interest."
