We are coming back!We are restarting our operations starting from 20/11/2021
Please note that we have explained this situation publicly before in the B4X forum : B4X Post
What happened?A company located in Italy (Napoli to be exact) contacted us wanting to work with us, after going back and forth, we agreed to sign a contract with them regarding developing projects for them exclusively.
We signed the contract and we starting working with them, the first project they requested is to finish developing an existing project they had, they sent us the source codes of this project, also they sent us demos (EXE) and Documents (Word Documents).
We (B4XCode) as a company we always set assignments to each employee within the required department depending on the project requirements, in this case, the first department was the research and marketing team, the first task was to read the documents, review the demos to be able to fully understand the concept of the requested project.
Once the team ran the EXE demos, their devices were infected by a virus under the name (makop) which is an encryption virus under the WannaCry virus family, After doing some research about this virus we found out later that this virus is a network (online) virus which means it infects every device that is connected to the same network.
Unbeknownst to us, within minutes the department PCs were encrypted and within less than 48 the the whole company was infected and all of our files were encrypted, personal PC, Work PC, Laptops, servers, NAS server, and 4 of our online servers.
Below are the screenshots of some of our encrypted files (Source codes, Marketing material and other important files) :
Where do we go from here?B4X introduced us to a world full of supportive family members, from helping members to selling source codes it was and will always be our pleasure to continue doing so.
Since the first public post we made regarding this matter, we have been working day and night to try our best to recover the encrypted data, we have restored a small percentage of the source codes and some other important files.
We are now ready to continue offering our services starting from 20/11/2021.
This situation really did hurt us badly (mentally and financially) but we will always stay strong and will always be ready to continue developing the best projects possible.
And to let everyone know,an email has been sent from us to every client we have stating the we are coming back on 20/11/2021 stronger and better.
