Helicopter maker Kopter has fallen victim to a ransomware attack after hackers breached its internal network and encrypted the company's files.
After Kopter refused to engage with the hackers, the ransomware gang has published on Friday some of the company's files on the internet.
The Kopter data has been published on a blog hosted on the dark web and operated by the LockBit ransomware gang. Files shared on this site include business documents, internal projects, and various aerospace and defense industry standards.
Kopter has not publicly disclosed a security breach on its website or via business wires.
A Kopter spokesperson did not return an email seeking comment on the ransomware attack. Phone calls made on Friday also remained unanswered.
