The leaked server and database making the rounds on social media does not belong to Eskom

Thursday, 07 February 2019: Eskom’s Acting Chief Information Officer, Nondumiso Zibi, said the server and “Mongo” database in question does not belong to Eskom, and it is not hosted in our network.

“We have traced it and can confirm that it is hosted in the US,” said Zibi. “We have   managed to trace the company responsible for this server and the database. The company is very co-operative and has since confirmed that the server has been shut down.”

Notwithstanding this, Eskom’s Group Information Technology team is conducting further investigations to determine whether the data in question is valid and belongs to Eskom customers.
