Italian luxury fashion giant Moncler confirmed that they suffered a data breach after files were stolen by the AlphV/BlackCat ransomware operation in December and published today on the dark web. The attack unfolded in the final week of 2021 when the luxury fashion brand announced an interruption in its IT services but assured that the attack would result in nothing more than a temporary outage. Ten days after that, the company released an update on the situation, reactivating its logistic systems and prioritizing e-commerce shipments that had been delayed in shipping.
Today, in a statement shared with Bleeping Computer, Moncler confirmed that some data related to its employees, former employees, suppliers, consultants, business partners, and customers was leaked today by the AlphaV (BlackCat) ransomware operation. “With regard to information linked to customers, the company informs that no data relating to credit cards or other means of payment have been exfiltrated, as the company does not store such data on its systems.” explains the statement.
