The Elevate Services breach occurred when one or more individuals broke into the network and encrypted essential files. The attackers encrypted the files in an effort to get the company to pay a ransom. The service was down for a day, and a complete investigation was conducted on the file servers to try and determine what information was copied and misused. No specific details could be obtained that showed what information was extracted by the attackers.
The Elevate Services data breach first became apparent on March 14, 2022 and the attackers were within the network until March 15, 2022. At that point the attack was cut off and the investigation of the attack began.
