Fujifilm's server in Japan falls prey to ransomware
FUJIFILM Corporation is the latest victim to a suspected ransomware attack on its servers. It announced that it is carrying out an investigation into a possible unauthorised access to its server. Due to the unauthorised access, it has been forced to partially shut down its network.
The organisation has confirmed that the attack is confined to a specific server in Japan.
In a statement, Fujifilm said that it became aware of the attack on 1 June 2021, late evening. It took immediate measures to “suspend all affected systems in coordination with our various global entities.”
To investigate, Fujifilm organised a “special Task Force” which included external experts. All global networks and servers were shut down while investigation was on-going.
As of 4 June, Fujifilm has determined the impact of attack is confined to its Japan headquarters. As a result, it has begun bringing its network, servers, and computers confirmed safe back into operation.
“We have reported the incident to the relevant government authorities and the police. We will continue to take all necessary measures to serve our customers and business partners in a secure way. We sincerely apologize to our customers and business partners for the inconvenience this has caused,” the statement concluded.
