Cyber-Attack on Stadler IT Network

Stadler’s IT network has been attacked by malware.

The Swiss rail company released a statement in response to the attack. Stadler said it immediately triggered the required security measures and got the relevant authorities involved. A detailed examination of the event is now under way.

Internal monitoring services discovered that the business’s IT network was attacked by malware and that this very likely led to a data breach of as yet unknown dimensions. Stadler believes this was a professional attack. The unknown perpetrators are trying to extort large sums of money from Stadler and are trying to pressure the company by threatening to publish data, which would harm the company and therefore also its employees.

External specialists are now also working on the case. The company’s backup data is comprehensive and functioning. Stadler is in the process of getting all impaired systems working again. It stresses that despite the coronavirus pandemic and the cyber-attack it is continuing its production of new trains and its service obligations.
