Cyber-attack affects law firms

A recent cyber-attack on CTS, a company that provides IT services to law firms and other organisations in the UK legal sector. 

It was reported the cyberattack occurred on Wednesday, 22nd November 2023, and caused a widespread outage that affected dozens of law firms and homebuyers. 

The cyberattack was reportedly caused by a CitrixBleed bug that has targeted other firms in recent weeks. 

CTS said that it was working with a global leader in cyber forensics to investigate the incident and restore the services as soon as possible. 

The cyberattack has raised concerns over the security and integrity of the data and systems of the legal sector, as well as the potential impact on the transactions and completions of the homebuyers.

The problem at CTS is having a knock-on effect on the firms involved in property completions. It is thought around 80 law firms have been affected.
