Kronos Warns Cyberattack May Knock HR Software Offline for Weeks

  • The company says it was hit by ransomware attack on Saturday
  • Kronos urges customers to use alternative options amid outage

Ultimate Kronos Group subsidiary Kronos, a provider of payroll and time-sheet software, said it suffered a ransomware attack that may force its systems offline for weeks.

The company became aware of the issue Saturday and began steps to “investigate and mitigate” it, according to a message the company sent to its customers and posted on its website. Kronos said it was “working with leading cyber-security experts to assess and resolve the situation,” but warned users to find alternative options given the delay expected before its software is working again.
