After breaching the systems of Maximum Industries, the LockBit ransomware group claims to have stolen sensitive information related to SpaceX.
Maximum Industries is a full-service, piece-part production, and contract manufacturing facility. The company provides CNC machining, laser cutting and waterjet cutting services for the aerospace, architectural, defense, marine, military, medical and mining industries.
The ransomware gang hacked the production firm’s systems, which also provides services to SpaceX, and stole its data, which seems to also include files from the American spacecraft manufacturer.
LockBit claims to have stolen approximately 3,000 “drawings certified by space-x engineers.”, according to Security Affairs.
I would say we were lucky if SPACE-X contractors were more talkative. But I think this material will find its buyer as soon as possible. Elon Musk we will help you sell your drawings to other manufacturers – build the ship faster and fly away. and now about the numbers: about 3,000 drawings certified by space-x engineers.
