The DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack that started yesterday (22.10) at 2.30 p.m. and is still ongoing, was directed at the Integer network of Omniva’s cooperation partner, and resulted in a global error in Integer systems. The attack was isolated and main functions of the system were restored by 7 p.m. yesterday evening. The functionality check of parcel machines was completed at 8 p.m. By now, the attack no longer jeopardizes Omniva’s systems. In addition, databases and customer data stored in Integer are definitely protected and are not affected by the attack in any way.

In connection with the attack, sending parcels from parcel machines and receiving paid parcels from the parcel machines was disrupted from 2.30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Customers were able to use parcel machines for receiving packages that were free of charge.

From the description it seems that Omniva accessed Integer’s databases from the same public channel which was attacked, but now Omniva has non-public access to Integer’s databases, which is not available to the attackers.
