Axis, a renowned camera manufacturer from Sweden, said it is still dealing with the fallout from a hack on its IT systems on February 20. According to a notice on its website, the company disclosed that it received indications from its cybersecurity and intrusion detection system on Sunday before shutting down all public-facing services internationally in the hopes of reducing the effect of the attack.
Axis said their investigation into the attack had progressed significantly, but it is not complete. So far, they haven’t found evidence that any customer or partner data has been compromised. According to the current investigation, they could stop the attack before it could be finished, reducing the potential damage.
Most important external services are now restored. Their prime objective is to restore the remaining services while also ensuring that security is not jeopardized. The duration of disconnected services and restricted communication with Axis was an unwelcome but unavoidable consequence. Their gradual return to normalcy following the attack is based on measures that help them avoid such circumstances in the future.
The disruptions were publicized on Twitter, but the company did not reply to demands for comment. Axis stated that its Case Insight tool in the US and the Camera Station License System were both experiencing partial failures on its status page on Friday afternoon. As of the same day, the Device Manager Extend Device upgrades for OS and applications were experiencing a severe downtime.
According to the company, services are being progressively restored. To secure the company’s infrastructure, Axis spokesperson Chris Shanelaris informed Bloomberg and SecurityInfoWatch.com that all public-facing internet services had been suspended. IPVM was the first to report the attack. Moreover, Axis has not stated whether the incident is a ransomware attack.
