Garmin Suffered Major Outage Causing Entire Business to Shut Down

A Cyberattack on Garmin Disrupted More Than Workouts


Garmin’s attack began with a ransomware attack that shutdown the site on Thursday, June 23rd. Services were unavailable, and they remained unavailable for at least 24 hours. Some people saw their services go back online faster than others, and there has been some apprehension that people will not be able to get back into their accounts after the attack. Some users are rightly concerned that their personal information was compromised, and that has led to a rash of complaints from customers of the company.

Personal information has not been compromised according to the company.

The company might release more information in the future about what happened during the attack, but customer information appears to be safe at this time.
