The Cl0p Ransomware Gang Attacks Siemens Energy

The Cl0p ransomware gang has attacked Siemens Energy. Siemens Energy is a global company that specializes in providing innovative solutions for the generation, transmission, and distribution of energy. Established as a separate entity from Siemens AG in 2020, Siemens Energy focuses on addressing the complex challenges facing the energy industry. The company operates within the realms of both conventional and renewable energy sources. It offers a wide range of products and services, including gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, and transformers. These technologies play a crucial role in various sectors, such as power plants, industrial facilities, and utility networks.

Cl0p posted Siemens Energy to its data leak site on August 14th but provided no further details. Cl0p is a major Ransomware-as-service (RaaS) platform first observed in 2019. Cl0p is a dangerous ransomware family because it has advanced anti-analysis capabilities and anti-virtual machine analysis to prevent investigations in an emulated environment like those commonly used by security tools. Cl0p is one of just a handful of threat actors that have developed a Linux version. While Linux has a tiny footprint in desktop computing, it runs ~80% of web servers and a substantial portion of embedded devices used in the healthcare field – and this means that Cl0p is likely actively recruiting new talent to help improve their platform and expand the scope of what and whom they can attack.

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
