A data center owned by the Finnish IT service provider Tietoevry located in Sweden was recently attacked with ransomware. Numerous companies, authorities and universities are affected by this. A lot of data cannot be restored.

The Finnish IT service provider Tietoevry is one of the largest IT service providers in Europe. The attackers used the ransomware to encrypt not only the data of numerous Tietoevry customers in Sweden, but also the backups and log files. Therefore, Tietoevry apparently cannot restore the affected data of numerous customers.

A press release from Tietoevry said: “While the overall recovery has progressed, services for affected customers continue to be impacted. A large team of experts is working on this around the clock in several places in parallel. We have notified the customers directly affected and are in dialogue with them to inform them of the current status of things.”
