Mondelez International, a multinational corporation known for brands like Oreos and Ritz crackers, encountered significant losses due to the NotPetya cyberattack in 2017. The attack resulted in the company losing over 1,700 servers and 24,000 laptops due to malware that masqueraded as ransomware but was in fact designed to be destructive without the means for decryption. NotPetya used an exploit to spread through networks, impacting several countries and companies beyond its initial Ukrainian target. The financial implications were enormous, with Mondelez seeking a $100 million claim from Zurich American Insurance, indicative of the extensive damage suffered. This incident highlights the severe vulnerabilities and potential repercussions businesses face from sophisticated cyberattacks.
