WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The ransomware eruption centered on a Florida IT firm was never a threat to the nation’s critical infrastructure, the company said Tuesday.

In a statement, Kaseya said its technology was typically used to help manage small businesses such as dentists’ offices, small accounting offices and local restaurants.

“This attack was never a threat nor had any impact to critical infrastructure,” the statement said.
