MSI targeted by Money Message ransomware gang, who demand $4 million ransom payment

Global hardware giant MSI targeted by Money Message ransomware gang, who claim to have stolen source code and databases from the company's network and demand $4 million in ransom payment. Screenshots of alleged stolen documents have been posted on the group's data leak website, with a threat to publish them in five days if demands are not met. BleepingComputer has reported on the attack and the ransomware group's activity, including a chat in which the threat actors claimed to have breached MSI's systems and stolen 1.5TB of data. MSI has yet to respond to BleepingComputer's inquiries, and the validity of the ransomware group's claims has yet to be confirmed.
