Accenture targeted in hacker attack

Accenture said on Wednesday it was targeted in a hacker attack, but insisted it "immediately contained the matter and isolated the affected servers."

"We fully restored our affected systems from back up. There was no impact on Accenture’s operations, or on our clients’ systems," the consulting firm stated.

However, CNBC reported a hacker group announced that they used Lockbit Ransomware to attack the company and threatened to will publish data they obtained in several hours. The hackers also offered to sell Accenture's insider information and databases to anyone interested.
