Hackers have breached the Solar Wind industry’s stock market with the aim of selling the solar power company’s shares at a premium.
The hack is being called a solar storm.
The hack attack was launched Monday by two companies named CloudFlare and KickassTorrents, the companies said in a blog post.
It targeted the SolarWind stock exchange.
It said that it was also seeking to sell SolarWind’s stock in a stock market that is heavily leveraged.
The attack was first reported by The Verge.
CloudFlare CEO Matthew Prince said in the post that the attackers had already compromised SolarWind by buying shares.
They used a reverse shell to steal data from the company’s trading platform.
The attack took place between April 15 and May 10, he wrote.
Kickass Torrents CEO Ryan Kaler said the hackers also stole data from a company called SolarEdge.
The hackers did not say how much the company had been worth.
They also didn’t disclose the source of their data.
The company said it’s working with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to protect customers from further cyber-attacks.
The SolarWind site, which is run by a California-based company called Wind Tech, is up and running again.
