iTCo Solutions, which is based in Rotorua, says it was the subject of a ransomware cyberattack in early February.

“The attack temporarily impacted some of our systems, and once the extent of the attack was known, a progressive restoration process began immediately to return the systems to operation,” an iTCo spokesperson said.

“We have not engaged with those responsible”.

iTCo’s website says the company services more than a “thousand businesses in New Zealand and overseas with a team of twenty six staff.”

The NZ Police and Office of the Privacy Commissioner has been made aware of the attack.
