Although the scope of the attack is currently unknown, this hacking event compelled WD to completely shut down its systems and services on Sunday.
Many My Cloud (WD’s NAS brand) customers have been negatively impacted by this failure as they are no longer able to access their personal NAS or any of the data that is saved on it.
WD likely took down its servers to stop the attacker’s progress, protect its own data, and keep users’ systems secure.
This is not the first time a hacking event has impacted WD’s NAS. Many WD My Book Live customers discovered that their NAS had been automatically reset, erasing all of their data, a few years ago.
All of the WD products and services that are known to have been impacted by the attack are listed below:
- My Cloud
- My Cloud Home
- My Cloud Home Duo
- My Cloud OS 5
- SanDisk ibi
- SanDisk Ixpand Wireless Charger
