Cyberattack on Vans and Timberland owner VF Corp disrupts operations

Major apparel and footwear company VF Corp, which owns popular brands like Vans, Timberland, Dickies and The North Face, suffered a cyberattack on December 13 that encrypted a portion of its IT systems, disrupting some of the company’s operations.

The intruders have also stolen data from the company, including personal information. The investigation of the incident is ongoing, with the company determining the full scope, nature and impact of the incident.

“The Company is working to bring the impacted portions of its IT systems back online and implement workarounds for certain offline operations with the aim of reducing disruption to its ability to serve its retail and brand e-commerce consumers and wholesale customers,” VF Corp said in a SEC filing.

Currently, it is unclear what personal data the attackers stole and whether employees or customers were affected. While the encryption of the servers points to a ransomware attack, at the time of writing, no ransomware gang has claimed responsibility for the hack.
