On 14th April 2021, the company was attacked by its cybersecurity platform with malicious intent however SmileDirectClub has not disclosed specifically was the nature of the cyber-attack.

Cyber-attacks can range from Smurf attack, DDOS attack, Malware attack, Drive-by, SQL injection, and other types of malicious attacks. However, one detail undisclosed by the company might narrow down the list of attacks which is that the SDS stock mentioned “No ransom was paid” which leads to suggest that it was a ransomware attack.

A ransomeware attack is a form of malware that blocks out the data on your computer with encryption rendering it inaccessible. The attackers then demand ransom from the victim in order to restore the data. The payment is usually made through Bitcoin.

No ransom but the attack still financially caused millions of dollars in losses

SmileDirectClub announced that it is not aware of any form of damage or loss to any of its data which includes exposure of customer services and team member information. The company states that it expects a loss of $10 to $15 million of revenue. The incidence has and potentially in the future cause delays in the operations of the company and throughout its network on the platform.

Furthermore, the company has reduced $195 to $200 million expected in the second-quarter sales due to the impact of the attack. The financial and monetary loss to the company depicts the intensity of the attack which must have deeply affected the SDC stock’s platform.
