Fox-IT, the Netherlands-based cybersecurity firm owned by NCC Group, revealed on Thursday that it had been the victim of a man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack made possible by DNS records getting changed at its third-party domain registrar.

The incident took place back in September and Fox-IT decided to disclose it now after conducting a detailed analysis. A law enforcement investigation is ongoing so the company has not shared any information on who might be behind the attack.
