Navistar International Corp. data has been hacked into the dark web, exposing sensitive financial information less than a month after the heavy truck and military vehicle maker announced a cyberattack. The information was discovered on Marketo, a website that advertises itself as a marketplace for stolen information. It consists of 82 files that look to be genuine, and the site’s owners are using it as a teaser for a 330-gigabyte treasure that will be auctioned off. Financial accounts, contracts, and other internal documents were among the items shared. Marketo said that the complete breach being sold includes data from partners and consumers.

The information was leaked less than a month after Navistar revealed a hack and data breach in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on June 7, and a day before its merger with Volkswagen AG’s TRATON SE went into effect. Navistar issued a statement saying that it is aware of a security incident that affected the company’s systems and that its investigation has confirmed that an unauthorized third party accessed and took certain data from the IT System.

The company also mentioned:

“the investigation is ongoing, and we have taken proactive steps to help minimize the potential impact. Navistar is committed to systems security and the protection of our corporate, customer, dealer, employee and partner information, and we take this responsibility seriously.”
