Aebi Schmidt, a European manufacturing giant with operations in the U.S., has been hit by a ransomware attack, TechCrunch has learned.
The Switzerland-based maker of airport maintenance and road cleaning vehicles had operations disrupted Tuesday following the malware infection, according to a source with knowledge of the incident.
Systems went down across the company’s international network, including its U.S. subsidiaries, but much of the damage was in the company’s European base. The source said systems necessary for manufacturing operations were inaccessible following the attack.
