Danish hosting firms CloudNordic and AzeroCloud have suffered ransomware attacks, causing the loss of the majority of customer data and forcing the hosting providers to shut down all systems, including websites, email, and customer sites.

The two brands belong to the same company and stated that the attack unfolded last Friday night. However, today's operational status remains highly problematic, with the firm's IT teams only managing to restore some servers without any data.

Moreover, the firm's statement clarifies that it won't be paying the threat actors a ransom and has already engaged with security experts and reported the incident to the police.

Most hosting companies use cPanel and downloading your data should be a standard occurrence at least once per week.

And that's assuming their backup system is working properly and the downloaded data is even valid. You can only do so much to protect yourself.

Had this happen to me, both personally and professionally.

Translation: The ransom amount was more than they stand to make on these accounts.
