MetalCraft Welding & Fabrication Ransomware Attack

MetalCraft Welding & Fabrication, a company specializing in metal fabrication and welding, has been targeted by the ransomware group Cuba. The attack was announced on the group's dark web leak site, and the victim's website is currently under scrutiny. The company operates in the manufacturing sector and is based in Luton, serving areas such as Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and North London.

MetalCraft Fabrication Ltd has been in operation since 1997 and offers a full steel fabricating service from consultation and design to delivery and installation. They are known for their quality craftsmanship, with much of their work coming from client recommendations. The company's website provides information about their metal fabrication services, welding services, and bespoke wrought ironwork. They also offer a free quotation with no obligation and a full fitting service.

The size of the company is not explicitly stated on their website, but they have a reputation for quality craftsmanship and serve a wide area, suggesting a moderate to large-sized business. The company's vulnerabilities in being targeted by threat actors are not explicitly mentioned in the search results, but ransomware attacks often exploit weaknesses in software, outdated systems, or lack of cybersecurity measures.

The ransomware group Cuba has claimed responsibility for the attack, but no further details about the attack or the ransom demand have been provided in the search results.


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.
