Foxconn confirms disruptions to production in Mexico as a result of a ransomware attack

Recently, the electronics manufacturer, Foxconn has confirmed that one of its production plants in Tijuana, Mexico has been impacted by a ransomware attack in late May. The plant is considered a key plant for Foxconn as it acts as a critical supply hub for the U.S. state of California which is a significant electronics consumer. A Foxconn spokesperson also revealed that the factory is gradually returning to normal and the overall impact on Foxconn’s overall operations has been kept at a minimum.

Even though Foxconn has not provided any further information about the incident, the LockBit ransomware group claimed responsibility for the incident when they published a posting on their data leak site on May 31 where they threaten to leak data stolen from Foxconn unless a ransom is paid by June 11.
