IT problems at Eurofins Group

Sidebar Image

Over the weekend of 2nd June Eurofins IT security monitoring teams detected a form of ransomware which has caused disruption to some of our IT systems.

Together with our external and internal IT security and operations experts, we have taken immediate actions to mitigate the impact and our IT teams are working hard to return all our IT operations to normal. As part of our incident management procedures, it has been necessary to take some servers offline, especially to avoid spreading of the incident and although our IT teams are working nonstop to restore operations, some Eurofins companies are still experiencing disruption to some of their systems.

According to current investigations, there is no reason to believe that there has been third party access to or misuse of any data.

As a result of this incident we are very sorry to inform you that there may be some short-term disruption or delay to our services.

Our teams are working hard to restore affected systems as soon as possible but at this point it is too early to evaluate exactly how long the disruption may last.
