VFEmail Suffers ‘Catastrophic’ Hack

Email company VFEmail suffered what they call a “catastrophic” hack that destroyed their primary and backup data for the U.S. The firm’s founder says he now fears some 18 years’ worth of customer email may be gone forever.

The first sign of the attack came on 11th February when the companies Twitter account started sounding the alarms.

Two hours later, VFEmail tweeted that it had caught a hacker in the act of formatting one of the company’s mail servers in The Netherlands.

In an update posted to the company’s Web site, VFEmail owner Rick Romero wrote that new email was being delivered and that efforts were being made to recover what user data could be salvaged.

This attack is unprecedented in the wild and it seems the attackers just wanted to do as much damage as possible and didn’t even ask for a ransom.
