Cloud Hosting Company Hit by Ransomware Attack: Customers Lose All Data
A devastating ransomware attack has targeted two sister cloud hosting companies, resulting in a complete loss of all customer data they were entrusted with. These companies, CloudNordic and Azero, both subsidiaries of Danish firm Certiqa Holding, released a statement on their websites revealing that they fell victim to a ransomware attack on the early morning of Friday, 18th, 2023.
The impact of the attack was severe, causing the shutdown of all systems, including websites, email servers, and the encryption of customer data. CloudNordic conveyed the grim outcome on its website, stating, “The attackers managed to encrypt all servers’ disks, as well as on primary and secondary backup systems, whereby all machines crashed and we lost access to all data.”
