Fr: Cegos victim of ransomware attack

Update of April 23: A sharp reader pointed out that Cegos Group never actually declared this a ransomware attack, so my headline and first sentence either jumped the gun or are wrong. I have emailed Cegos to ask them if they will clarify and will update this if a response is received. 

Cegos Group, a distance learning and training provider, was hit with a ransomware attack on April 15.  The firm posted a notice on their web site on April 20. The notice explains that the firm was investigating the incident and it was not yet clear whether individuals’ personal information had been compromised.

While the training and learning platform remains functioning, the accounting and invoicing tools remained out of service as of yesterday.
