US spirits and wine giant hit by cyberattack

Brown-Forman, one of the largest U.S. companies in the spirits and wine business, suffered a cyber attack. The intruders allegedly copied 1TB of confidential data; they plan on selling to the highest bidder the most important info and leak the rest.

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, the company holds world-known whiskey and scotch brands like Jack Daniel's, Woodford, Old Forester, Collingwood, Glenglassaugh, and Glendronach; Herradura, El Jimador, and Pepe Lopez tequila; Finlandia vodka, and Sonoma-Cutrer wines.

Sodinokibi (REvil) ransomware operators announced on Friday that they had compromised Brown-Forman's computer network and spent more than a month examining user services, cloud data storage, and general structure.

Following the incursion, the attackers claim they stole 1TB of data that includes confidential information about employees, company agreements, contracts, financial statements, and internal correspondence.
