Canon confirms ransomware attack in internal memo

Canon has suffered a ransomware attack that impacts numerous services, including Canon's email, Microsoft Teams, USA website, and other internal applications. In an internal alert sent to employees, Canon has disclosed the ransomware attack and working to address the issue.

BleepingComputer has been tracking a suspicious outage on Canon's image.canon cloud photo and video storage service resulting in the loss of data for users of their free 10GB storage feature.

The image.canon site suffered an outage on July 30th, 2020, and over six days, the site would show status updates until it went back in service yesterday, August 4th.

However, the final status update was strange as it mentions that while data was lost, "there was no leak of image data."  This led BleepingComputer to believe there was more to the story and that they suffered a cyberattack.
