The Italian luxury sports car maker Ferrari has disclosed a data breach following a ransom demand received after attackers gained access to some of the company’s IT systems.

“We regret to inform you of a cyber incident at Ferrari, where a threat actor was able to access a limited number of systems in our IT environment,” Ferrari says in breach notification letters sent to customers.

“Ferrari N.V. announces that Ferrari S.p.A., its wholly-owned Italian subsidiary, was recently contacted by a threat actor with a ransom demand related to certain client contact details,” the company said in a statement.

“Upon receipt of the ransom demand, we immediately started an investigation in collaboration with a leading global third-party cybersecurity firm.”
