The Tietoevry attack had even worse consequences than feared

Several Tietoevry customers fear that the backups, for which the Finnish company was responsible, have also been lost forever. The customers of Tietoevry, which fell victim to the Russian Akira hacker group in Sweden, say that a lot of backups were destroyed in the attack. This happened despite the fact that, according to several customers, Tietoevry is responsible for backups. According to Dagens Nyheter, which reports on the matter, customers needed backups after the attack, when Tietoevry’s virtualization and management servers, which ran the customers’ websites and systems, went haywire.
