• Dish Network Possible Cyber Attack


    Dish Network goes offline after likely cyberattack, employees cut off
    By Ax Sharma

    American TV giant and satellite broadcast provider, Dish Network has mysteriously gone offline with its websites and apps ceasing to function over the past 24 hours.

    The widespread outage affects Dish.com, Dish Anywhere app as well as several websites and networks owned by the corporation. Customers also suggest the company’s call center phone numbers are unreachable.

    Additionally, customers are facing authentication issues when signing into TV channel apps such as MTV & Starz via their Dish credentials.

    Dish Network’s remote employees have been cut off from accessing their work systems.

    Employees report it’s a cyberattack
    A source in touch with a Dish Network employee told BleepingComputer that the network “has been hit” (by a cyber attack) with employees seeing “blank icons” on their Desktop—something that typically occurs after a ransomware infection encrypts the victim’s files.
    Hours after publication of this piece, another Dish Network employee contacted us stating that Dish has indeed been “cyber attacked.”

    The employee reports receiving a written message from their manager that the incident “was caused by an outside bad actor, a known threat agent” and that the company is unsure how they gained access.
