IT services firm Conduent hit by Maze ransomware attack

Earlier this week IT services provider Conduent confirmed that it had been affected by a ransomware attack.

The company, which deliver services and solutions on behalf of business and governments across the world, said that its European operations were hit by the attack overnight on 29th May 2020.

Cyber attackers took advantage of a vulnerability in Citrix VPN appliances in the early hours of the morning, but in a statement Conduent confirmed that the incident resulted in only “partial interruption” and that most of its systems were back online by 10am that morning.

Bad Packets claimed that, according to its own research, a Citrix server run by the IT services giant was left unpatched for at least eight weeks.
