Cologne Chemical company Lanxess has been the victim of a hacker attack. The malware was discovered “in the second half of last year” in parts of the IT network, a company spokesman said on Friday.

According to research by Bayerischer Rundfunk and NDR, a hacker group called “Winnti” is behind the attack, which is said to have links to the Chinese state. Lanxess himself did not want to comment on who was behind the hacker attack.
