CyrusOne, a large data center provider in the U.S., announced on Thursday that some of its systems were affected by a ransomware attack.
Several customers impacted by the incident have availability problems. The company's managed service division is currently working to restore activity to normal.
The official note published by CyrusOne is a forward-looking statement that does not share too much information.
The company informs that six of its customers are affected because of file-encrypted malware. These customers are mainly serviced by the company's New York Data Center.
Managed services are not the main business of the provider as CyrusOne also offers colocation facilities in about 48 data centers across the globe.
Systems affected by this ransomware attack are limited to this division and do not include IX (internet exchange) and IP Network Services.
