Hackers may be targeting the Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHK). It was the victim of a massive cyber attack. All positions in Germany are affected. In order to protect valuable data from the attack, both the IHK’s websites and telephone systems were taken offline.
The attack took place via an IT service provider of the Chambers of Industry and Commerce. Employees became aware when the servers were no longer accessible. As a result, the connection was cut across Germany and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) was informed. As the SWR reports, it is still unclear whether the attack was successful.
