Gentex Suffers Data Breach at Hands of Dunghill Ransomware Gang

Gentex, a Michigan-based technology and manufacturing company, has confirmed it suffered a data breach following an attack by the Dunghill ransomware gang.

Dunghill claims to have stolen 5TB of sensitive corporate data, including emails, client documents, and the personal data of 10,000 Gentex employees. "Gentex is aware of the data breach that occurred several months ago, and we have communicated to all affected parties.

It's important to note that the breach has not had an impact on our operations," said Craig Piersma, vice president of marketing and corporate communications at Gentex. Despite the incident occurring several months ago, Gentex has only now publicly disclosed the 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.
