Unveiling Leaseweb’s Recovery: System Restoration and Ongoing Investigation

During this time, the client portal was inaccessible. Leaseweb sent out email notifications about the incident and commenced the process of system restoration.

To delve into the matter, an external firm specializing in digital forensics was engaged to conduct an investigation.

As of now, the identity of the attackers and their motives remain undisclosed. The management has not identified any further malicious activities within their systems. No reports of data leaks or ransom demands have emerged.

Reassuringly, specialists have confirmed the complete restoration of the portal’s functionality, with all systems operating normally.

Founded in the Netherlands in 1997, Leaseweb boasts an expansive network of 26 data centers across Europe, Asia, North America, and Oceania.

Experts advise cloud service users to exercise vigilance and prioritize their data security, including implementing multi-factor authentication.

While Leaseweb’s swift response to the incident is notable, the extent of the threat’s neutralization remains uncertain. The ongoing investigation seeks to shed light on the situation.
