Iphofen (dpa / lby) - The building materials manufacturer Knauf has become the target of a cyber attack. This was announced by the company based in Iphofen (Kitzingen district) on Thursday. The "Main-Post" had previously reported on it.

Parts of the systems have been temporarily shut down for security reasons and for further IT forensic investigations. This affects the supply chains of the group. The company did not provide any further information.

Knauf was in the spotlight in mid-May because the company's shut-down plasterboard factory was bombed in eastern Ukraine. Knauf shut down the plant shortly after the Russian invasion.
