TPG Telecom said an unknown attacker breached an old IT services platform as a service that was to be shut down in August.
He said the company in a financial presentation [pdf] that the TrustedCloud service “was compromised in a recent cyber incident.”
TrustedCloud was acquired on the purchase of TPG from the on-demand service provider IntraPower in 2011.
Provides IT as an “integrated” service [a] FlexPod cloud computing infrastructure platform, designed and delivered by NetApp, Cisco and VMware ”.
TPG did not say how the platform was breached, but said “only a few customers remain,” due to the planned shutdown of the service in August this year.
Two customers were said to have been affected and offered help.
The company added that a forensic investigation showed that other TrustedCloud customers were not affected.
TPG said TrustedCloud was “hosted in an independent environment that is separate from our telecommunications networks and other systems.”
“The incident has not affected customers of any of our other brands, products or services,” TPG said.
Although the service had to be shut down, TPG said it had strengthened “cyber security defenses throughout our business” as a result of the incident.
