Early in the morning of September 27th, we detected that Aktieinvest was subject to an ongoing ransomware attack.
The attack that we were subjected to is a so-called ”Ransomware as a service attack”, with a virus called Lockbit 2.0. The virus is designed to strike a Microsoft-based environment, and that’s how we were affected. Our trading platform is an autonomous environment, and the attack has therefore not affected it. Thus, you can rest assured that your assets such as shares, funds, options, cash, etc. with us are not affected by the attack.
The incident has been reported to the police and other authorities.
