Over the weekend of 2nd June Eurofins IT security monitoring teams detected a form of ransomware which has caused disruption to some 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.
Despite this disruption, all of the Eurofins York laboratories (Grangemouth, Castleford and Bristol) are open and operating normally with our full range of testing, certification and compliance services available to both new and existing customers.
There is currently some interruption in our email service and therefore we would recommend that you call our laboratories directly and the staff will be able to help you.
