CCCam, the popular internet security software for business customers, was hacked by two unknown attackers on Monday, the company said in a statement.
The company said the attackers, who were identified by the company as two Chinese nationals, took control of the CCCams servers on Monday afternoon and started a “distributed denial-of-service attack” on them.
They also “took control of a portion of the server’s infrastructure,” according to the company.
They used “several pieces of malware” to take over the Cccams servers, it said.
The CCCamps servers are used by many businesses, including major brands, to store customer credit card data.
The malware is targeted against the CUCAM server itself, not just any CCCAMP server, and does not affect the COCAM server as a whole.” “
These attacks are being carried out using a highly sophisticated tool called ‘CCCam,’ which was developed and published by CrowdStrike and other vendors.
The malware is targeted against the CUCAM server itself, not just any CCCAMP server, and does not affect the COCAM server as a whole.”
The company said there are no known indicators that any of the attackers were able to get access to the CCDams servers.
CrowdStrike said in its statement that it was “proud of the work” it has done and is working closely with CCCamin to investigate the incident.
