Local provider SKP was unable to provide internet or television services to customers due to a ransomware attack last weekend. ‘Most’ customers should now have TV and internet again. SKP provides services in Delfgauw, Nootdorp and Pijnacker.
The ransomware attack took place on the morning of Saturday, April 22, writes the provider. The attack “has caused an outage of all our services,” SKP writes. It is not clear how the cyber attack could cause this. Since the attack, the provider has been able to ‘partially’ provide internet and television services to customers again. “Unfortunately, there are still problems with our telephone service, the SKP email is not working and there are still individual customers who experience internet problems.”
SKP also says it wants to tackle these problems, but does not yet know when all problems can be solved. It is also not known whether the hackers stole data, SKP says. The provider says it will report it to the police. It is not known how much the hackers are demanding. SKP offers both fiber optic and coax services.
