Internap Loses Customer Data, Shrugs, Doesn’t Apologize

Internap was the victim of a ransomware attack and responded today by announcing they were simply quitting a variety of businesses.

On Wednesday, September 28th, between the hours of 2:11 am CDT and 5:41 am CDT, INAP was the target of a ransomware attack that affected the services we provide to you.

Unfortunately, your services are not recoverable because of this attack.

Additionally, multitenant website, database, and email hosting services will no longer be available following this event.

Our recommended path forward is to re-create any affected services on a bare metal server and to upload your data from your local copies if available.

Update: The announcement appears to have been removed from Internap’s site but was archived on, here.
