LockBit Ransomware Demands $25 Million from London Drugs

London Drugs has confirmed that a recent cyber-incident targeting their chain was a severe ransomware attack. The attack resulted in sensitive data being stolen, with the perpetrators demanding a hefty ransom from the company. Despite the ransom demand, London Drugs has stated that they have no intention of paying.

The cyberattack against London Drugs occurred in late April 2024, leading to the temporary closure of stores across Western Canada due to what was initially referred to as an “operational issue.”

Headquartered in Richmond, Canada, London Drugs operates a chain of 78 stores nationwide. Following the initial operational disruption, it was later revealed that the incident was an attack orchestrated by the notorious ransomware group, LockBit.

LockBit, known as one of the world’s largest ransomware operators, demanded $25 million from London Drugs in exchange for the decryption key and to prevent the release of stolen data. Despite the group’s pressure tactics, London Drugs has affirmed that they are not willing to comply with the demands.
