Luxury Italian men’s clothing line Boggi Milano has confirmed what Ragnarok was already bragging about on the Dark Web: The brand was hit with a ransomware attack, according to multiple sources.

Ragnarok and Boggi Milano representatives who spoke to Bloomberg agree on the facts; the ransomware attack exfiltrated 40 gigabytes of data, including human resources files and salary information. Bloomberg was provided access to documents confirming the breach.

TechNadu meanwhile reported that, with the help of KELA, a monitoring tool for the Dark Web, investigators were able to look at filenames being leaked by Ragnarok and found payroll files, payment PDFs, vouchers, tax documents and more.

Boggi Milano is based in Italy, and has 190 stores in 38-plus countries, according to the company, outfitting men in high-end fashion.

No one has disclosed how much Ragnarok wants in ransom to return the files. The Boggi Milano website is still up and running, and the brand said it is working with Italian authorities on the matter.
