Fujifilm Restores Services Following Ransomware Attack

Japanese multinational corporation Fujifilm on Monday reported that it has restored operations following a recent ransomware attack.

Founded in 1934 and headquartered in Tokyo, the company operates in a broad range of areas, including photography, office and medical electronics, optics, biotechnology, and chemicals.

On June 4, the company announced that it had fallen victim to a ransomware attack that forced it to shut down its network.

Immediately, Fujifilm launched an investigation into the attack, which revealed that impact was “limited to specific networks in the country.” Thus, servers and computers deemed to be safe were brought back online.

On Monday, the company announced that it was able to restore “normal operations for customers and business partners,” including reception of orders, as well as product shipments.

The company also says it is working on eliminating delays for those orders that have been affected by the incident.

According to Fujifilm, the attack did not result in data compromise. The company also says it has taken all of the necessary measures to ensure protection against unauthorized access.

“The investigations completed so far have found no evidence of information leakage to the outside world,” the company says.

Fujifilm hasn’t provided specific details on the type of ransomware used, nor on the ransom demands the attackers made, if any.
