Ransome attack affecting Uponor's operations
Uponor Corporation, Investor news, 7 November 2022 at 09:15
On 5 November 2022, Uponor was subject to a cyber security attack affecting its operations in Europe and North America. The company started immediate actions to investigate and remediate the situation. Investigations showed that the incident was caused by a ransomware attack, and hence we consider it as a serious criminal act. The company will report the incident to the police and to the data protection authorities.
Michael Rauterkus, President and CEO, comments:
“All efforts are being made to ensure the continuity of Uponor’s business and to keep any impact on Uponor’s customers to a minimum. Uponor takes the cyber security attack extremely seriously, and we apologize for the inconvenience it may cause our stakeholders.”
As the case will be under police investigation, Uponor does not comment the matter any further.
