VF Corp Says Data Breach Resulting From Ransomware Attack Impacts 35 Million

Security Week

In mid-December, the Denver, Colorado-based company, which owns brands such as Dickies, The North Face, Smartwool, Timberland, and Vans, announced that it took certain systems offline in response to a ransomware attack that impacted its operations.

Right from the start, VF Corp said that the attackers were able to access certain corporate and personal information, and that a material impact from the incident was expected.

In a January 18 Form 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the company revealed that the hackers stole the personal information of approximately 35.5 million individual consumers.
