Sferra Fine Linens Hit in Cyberattack

August 23, 2022


Attackers were inside textile manufacturer, Sferra Fine Linens, LLC’s network ten days before the company discovered a cyberattack back in April, but just released notification of the incident Friday.
“To date, we have no evidence of actual or attempted misuse of information as a result of this incident,” the company said in a statement. “This event did not impact any of Sferra’s e-commerce platforms or any information retained in our e-commerce systems.”
On April 24, Sferra said it became aware of suspicious activity on its computer servers. The company then took immediate steps to secure the network, and then called in third-party forensic specialists, who then deployed countermeasures to contain the attack.
