The 8Base ransomware gang has attacked Ted Pella Inc. Ted Pella Inc. is a company specializing in providing laboratory supplies and microscopy equipment. Based in Redding, California, Ted Pella Inc. is known for offering a wide range of products and services to support scientific research, microscopy, and sample preparation for various fields, including life sciences, materials science, and electron microscopy. 8base posted Ted Pella Inc to its data leak site on October 3rd but provided no further details. Despite a significant increase in activity during the summer of 2023, the 8Base ransomware group has managed to maintain a relatively low profile. This group employs encryption techniques alongside "name-and-shame" tactics to pressure their victims into paying ransoms. 8Base demonstrates an opportunistic approach, targeting victims from diverse industries. However, crucial details regarding their identities, methods, and motivations remain shrouded in mystery. The swift and efficient operations of 8Base suggest that this group is not newly formed but rather an established and mature organization. Based on available information, certain aspects of their current operations bear a striking resemblance to past ransomware activities. The 8Base ransomware group emerged in March 2022, but it experienced a significant surge in activity in June 2023. Describing themselves as "simple pen testers," they operate a leak site that provides victim information through Frequently Asked Questions and Rules sections, along with multiple contact options. Notably, 8Base's communication style shares similarities with another known group called RansomHouse.
