A European-based aerospace
supplier, in the closing stages of being acquired by Wichitaâs
Spirit AeroSystems Inc., was recently hit by a ransomware cyber
attack that shut down its operations. Asco Industries Inc.
says on its website that the attack, which happened last week,
caused âa serious disruption on all of our activitiesâ and caused
the stoppage of work at all of its sites in Belgium, Germany,
Canada and the United States. âWith the help of external expertise,
we installed several network streams to allow a safe and secure
restoration of our systems in the different sites.
