New Money Message Ransomware Gang Hits MSI, Threatens of Data Leak

Recently surfaced Money Message ransomware group has claimed responsibility for targeting not only MSI but also several other companies across different countries including the US, the UK, and Bangladesh.

Micro-Star International or MSI, a Taiwanese multinational information technology corporation, has fallen victim to a ransomware attack by a relatively new group called Money Message.

The attack has been confirmed by MSI through postings on their website and the Taiwanese stock exchange. Money Message is now demanding a ransom of $4 million to prevent the leaking of MSI’s confidential data.

MSI’s press release, however, seems to downplay the severity of the situation, stating that the affected systems have resumed normal operations with no significant impact on financial business.

Regardless, Money Message currently claims to hold critical information about MSI’s hardware, including the BIOS source code for motherboards. If the ransom is not paid, the group has threatened to leak this data, which could have serious repercussions for MSI in the future.
