Hackers hacked australian host distribute.it and destroyed all data including backup
Hackers have managed to break into the network of a famous australian web hosting provider Distribute.it and destroyed all its data including backup. This attack was performed the last week which is a great loss to the company because customers are unhappy due to loss of data.
there were 4,800 affected websites can be restored from backup done by their owners but those websites whose back up was not done y owners have been lost foreve. This is a great stupidity of the company why it hadn't create any offline backup of data. Since recovery is not possible means a low level operations were executed to delete data.
The company issued a statement today, "We regret to inform that the data, sites and emails that were hosted on Drought, Hurricane, Blizzard and Cyclone can be considered by all the experts to be unrecoverable, While every effort will be made to continue to gain access to the lost information from those hosting servers, it seems unlikely that any usable data will can be salvaged from these platforms.
