The attackers who hit the company did not say when they had done so, putting up a screenshot on the dark web of some of the data exfiltrated and advising Chem Pack to make contact.

They claim to have financial information, personal information of clients and other “important private documents”.

The ransomware is able to exploit a 2018 vulnerability in Windows to elevate privileges, a flaw that Microsoft rates as important.

The company is yet to comment.
