MONTREAL – D-BOX Technologies Inc. (TSX: DBO) said that they were subject to a ransomware cyberattack on its information technology systems. The malware used to perform the attack encrypted electronic data stored on the Corporation’s network so it cannot be read or used.
The attack took place after the close of business on July 12, 2021 and was detected on the same day, with steps immediately taken to contain and mitigate any potential impact to the Corporation’s data and operations and start the recovery process. D-BOX is still investigating the extent of the attack, but it is anticipated, as the attack affected most of its systems, that D-BOX’s business operations will be adversely affected for several days and potentially longer depending how quickly the Corporation may recover its data and make full use of its systems.
At present time there is no evidence that customers’ personal information was compromised as a result of this attack, and the Corporation generally does not receive personal information from its clients comprised mainly of businesses. However, some employee personal information may have been compromised and if that is the case, the Corporation will be taking measures to minimize the impact for affected employees.
Independent cybersecurity experts were brought in to assist the Corporation in dealing with the matter in accordance with industry best practices.
