Ransomware Attack on Epiq
This past week, one of the world's largest providers of electronic discovery managed services, Epiq, suffered a ransomware attack. Apparently, no customer data was compromised, but Relativity platforms hosted by Epiq were down today, and its web site was taken off line.
A news release posted here, indicates that law enforcement authorities have been contacted.
Tech Crunch posted an article which includes statements by an anonymous insider at Epiq who claims that the attack compromised computers at each of its worldwide offices, and may have resulted from the use of old versions of Windows(!).
