A CCCam server in Seattle has been down and is under investigation after an attack that infected several users and the servers administrator with malware.
The CCCams server is currently offline due to a new threat discovered by Microsoft and Microsoft Security, according to a Microsoft spokesperson.
Microsoft has not yet responded to a request for comment.
The new threat is described as “macromechanical malware” and is believed to have been created by an unknown source.
Microsoft says it has identified and blocked the source, but has not revealed the name of the malware.
It also does not know if the malware is the same as one Microsoft is investigating.
A Microsoft spokesperson says the company is aware of the incident and working with Microsoft to investigate.
Microsoft said that it will work with CCCA, CCCM, and the CCCAMS to “secure the CCEAM service.”
Microsoft is also working with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to investigate the matter.
Microsoft has been in contact with Microsoft and the FTC to “conduct a comprehensive review of the matter,” the spokesperson said.
The company also said it will help Microsoft identify and remove the malicious code, but declined to provide any details.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a question about whether it has taken any action to address the issue.
The company is investigating the matter, and has “a team working with our OEM partners to help address any remaining issues.”
