On 04 June, Fujifilm confirmed that it had experienced a ransomware attack from a group of hackers. The company said that this attack was affecting a "specific network" in Japan and that it shut down "all networks and server systems" while the attack was being investigated. 

According to a new report, Fujifilm has since heard from the hackers, but is refusing to pay their ransom demands. Instead, Fujifilm will reportedly be relying on backups in order to restore their servers.
