Contract electronics manufacturer Foxconn has confirmed to Bleeping Computer that one of its factories in Mexico has fallen victim to cyber criminals. Specifically, a factory located in Tijuana, a critical supply hub for the US, is being extorted by a ransomware gang. The operators behind the Lockbit 2.0 ransomware have claimed responsibility.

According to reports today, the breach of Foxconn Tijuana systems occurred in late May. A post by the Lockbit group indicates that it has given Foxconn approximately a fortnight to comply with its demands, or it will leak “all available data,” that it has purloined from Foxconn servers. The demands of the extortioners haven’t been disclosed.
