DE: Symrise impacted by ransomware attack

Symrise, a German manufacturer of flavors and fragrances used in products, has reportedly been the victim of a ransomware attack.  The attack was reported by Handelsblatt, and brought to our attention by @Chum1ng0.  Unfortunately Google translate is giving me a bit of a headache with this one. That said, I do not see any ransom amount mentioned or type of ransomware mentioned.

If anyone has more details, please use the Comments section below to let us know.

      Another attack? Maybe your relative could let us know more? They can email me at breaches[at]databreaches[dot]net.

    Symrise was likely struck by Clop ransomware it seems looking at the ransom note:
