LG and Mitsubishi were recently attacked by two ransomware gangs and are now being threatened with data leaks, as reported by Bleepingcomputer.

One of the gangs claimed they had stolen 40GB of code from LG in a post to their darknet site on Friday, June 24. Brett Callow, a threat analyst and ransomware expert at malware lab Emsisoft, told Cointelegraph it seems from the post that the hackers are suggesting they stole source code for LG product, like cellphones, which could pose a security threat to users. 

Ransomware gang DoppelPaymer also posted screenshots of alleged proof of stolen data from Mitsubishi on their darknet site. Neither Mitsubishi or LG has released a statement about the attacks.
