IT service provider Econocom victim of cyber attack

Hackers managed to penetrate Econocom’s systems last weekend. The investigation into the event is ongoing.

The Belgian Econocom has fallen victim to a cyber attack. The company announced this in a press release. An investigation into the consequences of the attack is still ongoing, but Econocom is fairly optimistic: “No leak of sensitive information has been identified to date.”

It is already certain, however, that the hackers managed to penetrate a shared folder. The IT service provider indicates that the hack was discovered after the attackers published a message stating they had hacked data from Econocom.
