Whirlpool hit in Nefilim ransomware attack

The Home Appliance juggernaut was hit by Nefilim ransomware.

I was not aware, but thanks to BleepingComputer but Whirlpool employs 77,000 people at 59 manufacturing & technology research centers worldwide and generated approximately $20 billion in revenue for 2019 and has the large brand names of KitchenAid, Maytag, Brastemp, Consul, Hotpoint, Indesit, and Bauknecht under their umbrella.

Down the line, it will be interesting to see if this affects the technology used in their appliances. Do they seem changed/influenced by increased security in a few years.
