140GB of confidential data from US-based door parts distributor leaked on hacker forum

A 140GB archive that purportedly belongs to Door Controls USA, a US-based door parts shop, has been leaked on a popular dark web hacker forum.

According to the forum post, the archive includes confidential company data and sensitive documents related to Door Controls USA, including manufacturing blueprints, machine-readable manufacturing code, financial and accounting data, as well as various legal documents.

The archive was leaked on November 27-28. It appears to have been posted on the hacker forum after Door Controls USA seemingly refused to pay ransom to cybercriminals who breached the company’s network.

The leaked data appears to come from Door Controls USA, a commercial automatic and manual door part seller and manufacturer based in Ben Wheeler, Texas. Established in 1995, the company claims to offer “the widest range of products in the automatic door industry,” including door locks, bolts, checks, and more.

Based on the samples we saw from the leak, the archive appears to contain more than 140GB worth of confidential company data, split across two folders. One folder seems to hold company financials and accounting information, while the other is dedicated to sensitive research and development data.

Because the archive was made freely available in the final week of November, we assume that a significant part of the hacker community was able to download and access the data since.

With that said, it’s uncertain how many forum users actually downloaded the entire 140GB archive, and of that, how many are capable or inclined to use the confidential data for malicious purposes.
