CyrusOne, one of the biggest data centre providers in the US, has suffered a ransomware attack, ZDNet has learned.
CyrusOne is currently working with law enforcement and forensics firms to investigate the attack and is also helping customers restore lost data from backups.
The incident took place yesterday and was caused by a version of the REvil (Sodinokibi) ransomware.
This is the same ransomware family that hit several managed service providers in June, over 20 Texas local governments in early August, and 400+ US dentist offices in late August.
