SGS Servers Compromised In a Data Leak; Customers in Jeopardy!



Firms including MG Motors, Shell India and Daimler India commercial vehicles got in jeopardy as the servers of SGS Group got compromised.

The private data saved on those servers was up for sale for a mere amount of $10,000 on ‘Dark Web’ or on the private internet forums.

Per sources, the data includes quality reports of the few very prominent oil and gas firms and truck manufacturers.

The firm in question mentioned that the leak’s been plugged, the anomalies have also been corrected and all the possible measures have been taken. Also the clients have been informed.

The firm’s Korean division which contains over 6,000 reports and French division were also under attack outing thousands of user data and test reports of its clients.

SGS servers are probably going to have quite a financial impact for its clients and customers.

“The SGS company servers have laid bare legitimate reports and it’s bound to have serious implications as hackers have all the access to the kind of files on the DarkWeb”, said J Prasanna, CEO, Cyber Security and Privacy Foundation Pte Ltd, Singapore.

According to him the situation clearly points to the actual storage devices being compromised.

The concerned firms were questioned about the damage to which Shell replied that they are strongly focused on ensuring high standards for its customers.
