The most significant bottler for Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola FEMSA Mexico, was the one who disclosed the cyberattack that was reported this week. Coca-Cola carried out a forensic investigation while simultaneously putting its cybersecurity protection and response mechanisms into action in order to ascertain the magnitude of the breach. The corporation did not elaborate on whether the event included a breach, the loss of data or passwords, or a violation of its networks.
In a statement that was made to the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV), it said that “the company is working with experts on measures to avoid an adverse impact on an adverse impact on its information technology applications.” The corporation did not elaborate on whether the event included a breach, the loss of data or passwords, or an attack of its networks.
It is important to highlight that this is not the first time that Coca-Cola FEMSA has been the victim of a cyber attack. At the end of April 2022, the soft drink company reported that it had been attacked by the Stormous ransomware, a group that had emerged at the beginning of that year. The group claimed that it had put up for sale more than 161 gigabytes of financial data, accounts, and passwords. This attack did not take place in the Mexican market.
