Hackers Destroyed VFEmail Service – Deleted Its Entire Data and Backups
#1
Quote:What could be more frightening than a service informing you that all your data is gone—every file and every backup servers are entirely wiped out?

The worst nightmare of its kind. Right?

But that's precisely what just happened this week with VFEmail.net, a US-based secure email provider that lost all data and backup files for its users after unknown hackers destroyed its entire U.S. infrastructure, wiping out almost two decades' worth of data and backups in a matter of few hours for no apparent reason.

Started in 2001 by Rick Romero, VFEmail provides secure, private email services to companies and end users, both free and paid-for.

Describing the attack as "catastrophic," the privacy-focused email service provider revealed that the attack took place on February 11 and that "all data" on their US servers—both the primary and the backup systems—has been completely wiped out, and it's seemingly beyond recovery.
"Yes, @VFEmail is effectively gone," Romero wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning. "It will likely not return. I never thought anyone would care about my labor of love so much that they'd want to completely and thoroughly destroy it."
The VFEmail team detected the attack on February 11 itself after it noticed all the servers for his service went offline without any notice.
