Hackers from the Iran-linked Pay2Key group announced that it has stolen data from servers belonging to Israel Aerospace Industries’ subsidiary Etla Systems. 

“Knock Knock! Tonight is longer than longest night for @ILAerospaceIAI,” tweeted Pay2Key. 

Pay2Key reportedly stole employee data and have published them on the Dark Web.

“IAI might think they have the most protected network, but this should be backed with proof,” taunted Pay2Key.

The group also posted the names and passwords of system administrator Koby Fiada and employee Zvika Weiss.

Aside from employee data, Pay2Key claimed that it has also stolen classified projects, videos, and research.

The Israeli cyber security firm ClearSky, reported on Pay2Key three days before the alleged IAI hack and said that the  ransomware group is  conducting cyberattacks on Israeli companies as part of an ongoing campaign against the Jewish state by Tehran.

Cybersecurity firm Check Point said that they managed to trace the attack to an Iranian cryptocurrency exchange named Excoino which fueled more speculations that it was a state-sponsored action.

No ransom demands have been made so far and there is no evidence yet that the allegedly stolen data has been sold on the dark web.
