ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.

 

As previously reported, on Saturday morning, July 17, 2021, our historical website domain – biontech.com – and email services were compromised and disabled. Research indicated that an unknown party had ‘hijacked’ the domain in a theft attempt.

 

On September 10, 2021, the Company filed a federal lawsuit ‘in rem’ to recover the <biontech.com> domain and against the unknown ‘John Doe’ who hacked and attempted to steal the website. The litigation has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division under the heading ‘Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc., Plaintiff, vs John Doe and <biontech.com>, Defendants’ (Case No. 1:21-cv-01034), seeking recovery of the domain name and other relief as set forth therein.

 

 

No shareholder, sensitive or confidential information was available to be breached which has limited damages from the hack/theft to date. However, the Company’s email operations have been subject disruption and expenses have been incurred related to the matter including legal fees.

 

While these issues are being resolved, Bion Environmental Technologies, Inc. has moved our website (and email) to a new domain: bionenviro.com. Website access is now www.bionenviro.com.

 

To send emails to Bion personnel, use the same name identifier previously used, but in the address, substitute ‘bionenviro.com’ for ‘biontech.com’:

For example, cscott@biontech.com (no longer functional) will now be cscott@bionenviro.com and mas@biontech (no longer functional) will now be mas@bionenviro.com.
