The malware is not fully contained yet, and Software AG's systems remain being affected by the attack.

Software AG has obtained first evidence that data was downloaded from Software AG's servers and employee notebooks. There are still no indications for services to the customers, including the cloud-based services, being disrupted.

The company is refining its operations and internal processes continuously.

Software AG is further investigating the incident and is doing everything in its power to contain the data leak and to resolve the ongoing disruption of its internal systems, in particular to restart its internal systems as soon as possible which had been shut down for security reasons.

Software AG did not pay the ransom and, according to a report on ZDNet, those behind the attack have started to publish internal company information.
