Recently, Whirlpool has suffered a ransomware attack by Nefilim ransomware gang and the attackers stole the data before encrypting devices. The Whirlpool Corporation is an American multinational manufacturer and marketer of home appliances that has generated approximately $20 billion revenue in the year 2019.

Whirlpool was attacked by the Nefilim ransomware gang in the first weekend of December and exposed the stolen files. The leaked data included documents related to accommodation requests, employee benefits, medical information requests, background checks, etc.

Nefilim is not only famous for ransomware attacks but also popular for other attacks on well-known companies. At present Whirlpool’s systems are fully restored and slowly recovering.
