The MCNA data breach occurred because the Bitlocker ransomware gang broke into the company's computer systems and gathered a substantial amount of data from the company. The attackers asked for a $10 million ransom and began leaking a small portion of the stolen data across the dark web.
The ABB ransomware data breach occurred on May 7th, 2023. Shortly after the breach, the company secured its network. On May 23, ABB released an official press release about the incident. No individual notices have been sent out since there is no indication that individual personal data has been involved yet.
The ABB data breach only impacts the company, factory workers, and users that rely on its services currently. There is no official data supporting that employees or customers are at risk of this data breach yet.
