Building Plastics, Inc. Ransomware Attack

Building Plastics, Inc. (BPI), a prominent player in the wholesale surfacing distribution and marketing sector, recently fell victim to a ransomware attack orchestrated by the Vice Society. This incident was disclosed on the group's dark web leak site, spotlighting BPI's vulnerability. Despite BPI's operation within the Retail sector, it was not previously identified as a potential target in ransomware attack databases. Nonetheless, the broader industrial sector, encompassing building materials manufacturing, has been pinpointed as a significant target, with 14% of ransomware attacks in the first quarter of 2023 impacting this domain.

BPI's digital presence, detailed on their website, showcases a range of products from tile and laminate to decorative surfacing and installation supplies. The site also features a blog, career opportunities, and contact information. The specifics regarding the company's size and potential vulnerabilities remain undisclosed.

The industrial sector's confrontation with ransomware attacks is escalating, with adversaries deploying diverse tactics to exploit vulnerabilities. The second quarter of 2023 witnessed a notable increase in the use of varied initial access techniques by ransomware groups, including the exploitation of zero-day vulnerabilities and the application of social engineering strategies. To counteract the threat of ransomware, it is imperative for companies to implement robust security measures such as access controls, endpoint protection, and automated patching to enhance their security posture.

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.
