17-06-2021 11:18 We cannot inform you whether we are going live today, simply because we don't know it yet. IBAS has not written anything back to us. We still have consultants setting up SQL. We will try to come with a short update after 12.30.
17-06-2021 10:20 Thursday update! The Danish, Swedish, Irish, Greenlandic, Icelandic, German and Austrian hotel data were restored last night. IBAS has not informed us yet, when we can get login and printer settings recovered. We will come with a new update, when we have more information from IBAS.

15-06-2021 08:55 We have installed 3 new Domain Controllers last night. However, we need to re-install all of our servers to be sure, that we don't have any hidden virus files.
15-06-2021 06:18 We went to sleep at 03.00 - 06.00. We need to get some sleep for some hours. I expect we will have a new update at 09.00-10.00.
14-06-2021 15:20 We don't have any real news! However, we are now formatting and re-installing all of our RDS servers and tonight we will further re-install our new hybrid clusters which is 4 month old. This is all being done, to be 100% sure that we don't have any hidden ransomware virus anywhere.
14-06-2021 12:45 Further update, we have just been in contact with one of our customers - who asked us how long time it will take before Picasso were running again. Now that we have got all the information regarding the data that can be recovered. We told our customer, that we expect to be live again this week, but we don't know for sure which day yet.

After Techotels filling of the information to the Danish Data Protection Agency, it has been agreed with the agency that no individual hotel - Data Controller (Dataansvarlig) should make any fillings themselves to the Danish Data Protection Agency. Techotel have informed the agency and provided them with all the information needed concerning all the hotels. This covers ALL hotels in Denmark, Sweden and Ireland.
14-06-2021 10:02 More information regarding the latest update. Now we will be focusing on re-installing many of the servers to make sure that we doesn't have any virus. We will also be cleaning other servers. I don't think any of the hotels will go live today.

12-06-2021 18:38 It is going forward for both teams. Team 1 are scanning all the 250 servers for virus and keys. Team 2, which focus is the IBAS data recovery, are trying to fix the hotels backup. However, the systems will not be ready tonight. I will give you all more information later during this evening, but we need more concrete results, before we know when we will go live.
12-06-2021 16:58 Update from the Eagle Shark team. The scanning is running better now. Next Update 19.00.
12-06-2021 15:51 Update from the Eagle Shark team. They are not finished scanning the servers after keys. There is an issue with user rights. Next Update 18.30.
12-06-2021 15:15 Info from IBAS: Nu har jeg fået første status fra ingeniørerne, og nogen af diskene skal blive færdige med udkopiering af rådata i løbet af i aften, mens nogen er færdige i morgen eftermiddag. Men det betyder i hvert fald, at vi så småt kan begynde at komme med mere brugbar info i løbet af morgendagen.
12-06-2021 13:22 I Just talked with the Eagle team and they are not finished with scanning the servers. I will come with a later update at 15.30. NB! the system will not go live today, when we get the right codes, It will take many hours to uncrypt the files.
12-06-2021 13:02 IBAS just gave us an early update about the recovery. I got the news that we can use most of it.
12-06-2021 12:33 I just got new information from IBAS data recovery. I need to login and read more about it. Sorry, we thereby delay the update to 13.00 DK Time
12-06-2021 09:44 Explanation to the two lines below. We follow two traces to get the data, but only one of the traces need to succeed to get access to the hotel data. I will make an update around 12.30 or if I get news.
12-06-2021 09:40 A morning status: Eagle Shark Team has found one more key last night, which will be tested soon. We will the next hours scan all 250 servers to find all keys. Thereafter, we need to test if the keys we found can be used to uncrypt the hotel data.
12-06-2021 09:32 We will contact IBAS Norway at DK time 09.15 to get a status of the project with recovering the damaged data. We hope to give you more information at 09:45 DK time.
12-06-2021 06:15 The E H developer have been up working the most of the night. At DK time 09:30 we will contact the developer for more information, on how far they are with finding more keys.
12-06-2021 06:10 This afternoon the backup NAS discs were flown to Oslo, to IBAS the world best company to read damaged data. IBAS will work at the NAS discs this whole weekend. It was not a good evening.
11-06-2021 22:44 The bandits gave us keys to uncrypt the files, but the keys does not always function, so we don't have access to the hotel data yet. To night an Eagle Shark consultant writes a program to scan all 259 servers for more keys.
11-06-2021 22:34 The bandits gave us keys to unencrypt the files, But the keys does not function always, so we dont have access to the hoteldata yet. This night an Eagle Shark consultant writes a program to scan all 259 server for mere keys.
11-06-2021 14:54 The interesting question is when will your hotel system go live again. The Bandits are actually helping us with cleaning the system. We think that the chances to go live tonight is smaller, than going live this Saturday. We will work the whole weekend until your system is running again :-)
11-06-2021 14:46 Update: It is very difficult, Team 1 are writing scripts to find the files to uncrypt. Team 2 are working with uncrypting the SQL hotel data. Team 3 are uncrypting mail servers. Team 4 are sending the backup Nas to NO to be recovered. IBAS are working this weekend.
11-06-2021 12:30 A reminder. Mailadresses from and to domains techotel.se and techotel.dk are NOT in use. Please use other contactmethods. But please follow this page for further information.
11-06-2021 11:14 NO: Dette påvirker ikke bruk av Picasso for våre kunder på norsk hosting, eller kunder med egne servere, men Picasso Online og Yield Planet er fremdeles nede. Dere kan legge inn eventuelle bookinger fra Channel Manager manuelt selv, husk da å legge til alt.res nummeret
11-06-2021 10:43 This is technical info: The encryption of some of the files have been conducted over maybe 4 times. This is very complex to uncrypt. Team 1 are in contact with the bandits, to get the right codes. Team 2 are trying to involve other specialist.
11-06-2021 06:17 Team 2 just finished the extra backup of all hotel reservations. They go to sleep now. Team 1 cannot be sure when, but we focus to get the hotels reservations decrypted. More to come.
11-06-2021 04:00 We need to sleep now. We are not live, but will continue Friday at 10.30.
10-06-2021 22:51 We have now got the decryption keys and are working on decrypting them in this moment. We are working in two teams. It is difficult to inform when we will be live. I dont think we will be live within the next 7 hours.
10-06-2021 19:52 Just now we got the final code til clean til cryptatet files. We will continue the hole night
10-06-2021 18:28 We got some tools to decrypt the hotel files with. We have meeting at 19.30 to come
10-06-2021 16:34 We have got the bitcoins and are now transferring them to the bandits. We expect that the bandits soon will decrypt the files.
10-06-2021 15:46 We have signed an agreement regarding the bitcoins for 30 minutes ago and we expect that the bitcoins will be transferred to the bandits very soon.
10-06-2021 14:12 If everything goes as planned, we will have the bitcoins within an hour and be able to pay the bandits directly and further be able to start the system again.
10-06-2021 12:51 We and Eagleshark continue the discussion with the bank and other consultants, of how to get the bitcoins and thereby to get our data released. More to come later.
10-06-2021 11:38 We and Eagleshark will continue the meetings with the bank and we are now closer to find a final solution. However, is is not a financial issue, it concerns the complications regarding money laundering regulations.
10-06-2021 10:20 We and Eagleshark are still working on getting the necessary Bitcoins, we have been in meetings with the bank to get the transfer done in 2 hours now......
10-06-2021 06:27 Status this morning: We and Eagelshark.com were informed about the amount we have to pay, it is much more than we expected! We have pay in Bitcoins to get access to the data. It is large sum that we need to transfer. I will update when we know more and how long it will take to complete the transfer and restore Picasso today
09-06-2021 17:08 You can read more about the Crypto attack on us and other companies tonight on TV. Read on regarding yours and ours current situation. We expect the hotels to open Thursday noon or evening!
09-06-2021 16:51 Dear all, we Techotel group expect that tonight at DK/SE time 21.00(20:00 Irish time) to be contacted by an Eagleshark negotiator informing us the amount, we are going to settle for recovering us from the attack. But the bandits do not accept bank transfer so we need to change the amount to Bitcoin. This will take us 3-7 hours. The bandits will then send us a program to decrypt the files. To fix the situation it might take 5- 10 hours
09-06-2021 13:57 I don't think we will be live in the next 2-4 hours. Please check your email at the hotel. Picasso is sending an arrival list to your email the evening before
09-06-2021 13:29 The specialist from https://www.eagleshark.dk/, we are using, is the best at this work. The attacker has not responded. Technical staff for us are cleaning server from virus
09-06-2021 11:35 Technicians are still working.
09-06-2021 09:51 Hi Nothing New just now. The specialist are now isolating the servers, that are not attacked from the serves that are under attack. I cannot say if we are live today, yet. People producing virus should be in jail!!

09-06-2021 07:50 We are hit by ransomware. You have to be prepared to not have access to your date the next hours. Before we get opened access to files again. NB this is not an Techotel error.
09-06-2021 06:59 In your main mail setup in Picasso if so, you should have an arrival for today, maybe before downtime/attack. Check the booking mail. Else check your digital report. I will write back at 08.00.
09-06-2021 06:52 We have been atacked by virus. Nothing is wrong with our cloud. We will work together with antivirus specialist to solve this.
