Johnson Controls Suffers Ransomware Attack

Global smart building and security systems maker Johnson Controls faces a major cybersecurity incident, it disclosed in a regulatory filing. “The incident has caused, and is expected to continue to cause, disruption to parts of the Company’s business operations,” it told the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Bleeping Computer reports the incident appears to be a ransomware attack from a recently-formed criminal group calling itself “Dark Angels.” The group is demanding $51 million, the outlet says.
