The hacking group known as The Dark Overlord claims to have hacked Gorilla Glue, maker of a popular super-strong adhesive. In a chat with the website Motherboard, The Dark Overlord claims to have “everything they ever created.”
The hackers say they have over 500GB of data from the company. This includes contracts, financials, presentations and strategy documents. They even have personal photos of executives and their families. Representatives from Gorilla Glue haven’t confirmed the hack yet, but The Dark Overlord provided a sample of files that does look legit, and the the photos appear to match up with other images of Gorilla Glue executives from other sources.
The Dark Overlord representative was coy when asked about the reason for the hack, but it’s assumed that they’re trying to extort the adhesive company.
