Update on the cyberattack at Aurubis

Hamburg, October 28, 2022 – On the night of October 28, 2022, there was a cyberattack on Aurubis’ computer systems. This was apparently part of a larger attack on the metals and mining industry. As a result, many systems at Aurubis sites had to be shut down and disconnected from the internet as a precaution. Production could be largely maintained. The extent of the impact within the Group is currently being assessed. In addition, Aurubis works closely with the investigating authorities.

The main objective is to maintain the production and supply of raw materials as well as the delivery of metals and products. However, Aurubis is not yet able to provide information on when the systems will be fully functional again.

Production and environmental protection facilities at foundry sites are in operation, and incoming and outgoing goods are also maintained manually. Transition solutions are being implemented to make full company services available to business partners again starting next week. Customers and suppliers can always reach their Aurubis contacts by phone.
