Solar technology company, Canadian Solar has been hacked by LockBit 3.0 ransomware

Canadian Solar, the manufacturer of solar PV modules, has claimed to be hacked by a ransomware known as LockBit 3.0 ransomware.

The hackers have claimed a ransom amount from the company and have given a deadline to pay the amount till 13 September 2022. For extending the leak to the next 24 hours, the company has to pay a ransom amount of $10,000. And to destroy all the hacked data, the hackers have claimed around $20,000 of ransom from the company. Also, for downloading the stolen data, the hackers demanded $20,000. However, if the company does not pay the ransom, the hackers have stated that the data will be published on the darknet.

LockBit 3.0, also known as LockBit Black is a new variant of the LockBit ransomware. This ransomware encrypts files, changes their filenames and the desktop wallpaper, and drops a text file on the desktop. For example, LockBit 3.0 renames the stolen files of ‘1.jpg’ as ‘CDtU3Eq.HLJkNskOq’, ‘2.png’ with ‘PLikeDC.HLJkNskOq’, ‘3.exe’ with ‘qwYkH3L.HLJkNskOq’ and so on.
