BREAKING NEWS: Shriro Hacked Feds Cyber Security Called In

Sydney based appliance distributor Shriro Holdings has been hacked with the business impacted claims management.

CEO Tim Hargraves claims that the distributor of Casio, Blanco, Omega and Everdure barbecues was subject to a cyber security incident involving unauthorised access to its
operating systems last week.

He said that the cyber security incident has impacted the Companies operating systems and that the business that recently moved to Chatswood is now dealing with the Federal Government’s Australian Cyber Security Centre.

He has not said whether the business has fallen foul of the Kaseya software problem that bought down businesses worldwide last week.

Joe Biden said on Saturday he had directed US intelligence agencies to investigate a sophisticated ransomware attack that hit hundreds of American businesses recently and aroused suspicions of Russian gang involvement.

Huntress, a security company, said on Friday it believed the Russia-linked REvil ransomware gang was to blame. Last month, the FBI blamed the same group for paralysing the meat packer JBS.

Hargraves said that Shriro Holdings has now engaged a leading cyber forensics firm to conduct an investigation and this investigation is ongoing.

Shriro has also commenced a comprehensive internal investigation to review its systems and processes.

Hargraves’s says “There is a possibility that data on our systems has been accessed and the Company is continuing to ascertain the extent to which data has been accessed. As investigations become more advanced Shriro will update the market and any impacted
stakeholders directly”.
