Recently, there have been two prominent ransomware groups making headlines: BlackCat ransomware (ALPHV) and Cl0p Ransomware. Surprisingly, both of these malicious entities have independently targeted and noted down the same company on their dark web leak sites. The company in question is none other than Estee Lauder, a renowned multinational cosmetics corporation.
These ransomware groups employ a similar modus operandi, encrypting valuable data and demanding hefty ransoms from their victims. However, what makes this particular situation intriguing is their shared focus on Estee Lauder.
While the precise reasons for targeting Estee Lauder by both these ransomware groups remain undisclosed, it underscores the gravity of the cyber threats faced by prominent corporations and organizations.
