Hackers carried out ransomware attacks against Tower Semiconductor Ltd (TSEM), a maker of wireless chips and camera sensors listed on the Israeli Nasdaq, and demanded hundreds of thousands of USD in bitcoin ransoms. For safety reasons, TSEM shut down some running servers and suspended production in some factories. The Israel newspaper Calcalist has now reported that Tower is set to pay hundreds of thousands of USD to hackers who have "paralyzed its manufacturing." The account references an unnamed source who it said was familiar with the matter but spoke on condition of anonymity.
