Pharmaceutical giant Cencora says data was stolen in a cyberattack

Pharmaceutical giant Cencora says they suffered a cyberattack where threat actors stole data from corporate IT systems.

Cencora, previously known as AmerisourceBergen, specializes in pharmaceutical services, providing drug distribution and solutions for doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and animal healthcare.

In a Form 8-K filing with the SEC, Cencora disclosed they suffered a cyberattack that led to data theft.

“On February 21, 2024, Cencora, Inc., learned that data from its information systems had been exfiltrated, some of which may contain personal information,” reads the SEC filing.

“We have no reason to believe there is a connection between the incident at Change and the unauthorized activity at Cencora,” Cencora told BleepingComputer in a statement.

A ransomware group known as Lorenz previously claimed to have breached Cencora in February 2023 while the company was operating as AmerisourceBergen, stating that they stole data related to the Animal Health division.
