Entega server hacked: customer data gets into the dark web

After a cyberattack on Hessian Energy’s subsidiary Entega, the criminals released a ton of customer data on the dark web. Entega AG, the owner of the Count and Care subsidiary that was hit by the cyberattack, said it was mostly customer names, addresses and details, and in some cases even bank details. Hackers attacked an IT service provider in mid-June 2022. In addition to customer data, the criminals stole the personal data of employees and business partners, which they subsequently posted on the dark web.

Entega Hack: how much damage?

An Entega spokesperson said most customers could be affected, but to varying degrees. The investigation into the stolen data continues. According to the company’s initial findings, hackers published bank details such as an IBAN number significantly less than 10% of the time. According to Entega AG’s annual report, the number of customer contracts at the end of 2021 was almost 700,000.

What is the dark web?

The Dark Web is a network on the World Wide Web that can only be accessed with special software and is designed to provide enhanced anonymity. It is used, for example, by activists in authoritarian countries, as well as by criminals for their illegal business. According to the German news agency (dpa), investigators now believe that a Russian group is behind the cyberattack. The prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt am Main is investigating. (Courtesy of dpa.)
