A group of REvil hackers gained access to data from the American software and robotics company Symbotic LLC. The attackers demand ransom in BTC and XMR.

REvil is known for organizing auctions for the sale of stolen data on the darknet. According to a June 11 REvil report, hackers gained access to Symbotic LLC data, including the names of the firm's employees, their residential addresses, social identity codes, income information, non-compete agreements and other confidential documents.

The hackers said that they had already begun to publish this information, since the company did not want to get in touch. To do this, cybercriminals created a separate website and paid for annual hosting. If Symbotic LLC does not send them ransom in BTC and XMR, these companies will be in the public domain for at least a year.

According to cybersecurity firm Cyble, the attack on Symbotic LLC may have occurred in early June. Emsisoft analyst Brett Callow said ransomware attacks are a big problem as companies agree to pay ransoms. The only way to stop such attacks is to make them unprofitable.

Companies need to improve their security measures, as most ransomware attacks are successful due to the low level of protection of firms. According to Callow, hackers are not going to put Symbotic LLC's data up for auction, but REvil can act unpredictably and change its mind at any time.

Recall that last month, REvil hackers stole 756 GB of celebrity data from a law firm, demanding $42 million in XMR, and also threatened to publish incriminating evidence on US President Donald Trump.
