Purported Iranian hackers launched a ransomware attack against H&M Israel and are threatening to publicize customer data, according to media reports. An Iran state-backed group identified as N3tw0rm warned it could release 110 gigabytes of H&M Israel’s data unless its demands, which neither the group nor H&M specified, were met.
Several other Israeli companies, including Veritas Logistic, have recently been targeted in similar cyberattacks, reports said. In that case, the hackers demanded 3 bitcoin ($170,000) in ransom. Israeli authorities say N3tw0rm is affiliated with the Iran-linked Pay2Key, which has in the past claimed to breach the Israel Aerospace Industries and Israeli cybersecurity company Portnox.
