On March 22nd, 2022, the Anonymous hacker group published on their Twitter profile a claimed hack of 10 GBs of data from Nestlé, a multinational food and drink corporation. A response of the data breach from Nestlé company, reported by Fortune, denies the hack stating the leaked data had been “accidentally” released by the company last month. A company excerpt states “[the data leak] it relates to a case from February this year, when some randomized and predominantly publicly available test data of a (business-to-business) nature was made accessible unintentionally online for a short period of time. We quickly investigated and no further action was deemed necessary.” The Anonymous group’s motivation for attacking Nestlé was due to the company’s ongoing operations in Russia, in continuing to provide services in the country which in response the company has opted to limit its consumers offerings.
