You may have noticed the recent emergency maintenance notifications from Oracle Eloqua between May 15th and May 16th, 2017. While we have no reason to believe we were impacted in any way, we wanted to proactively ensure that the Oracle Eloqua system was protected against the recent WannaCrypt malware attack.
We recognize that the information in our emergency notifications was quite vague, but wanted to follow-up to provide additional details now.
Rest assured our systems are protected against this most recent attack, and we are constantly monitoring the platform to ensure we are guarded against newly emerging issues as they arise.
Thank you for your patience given the last minute nature of these emergency maintenance notifications.
No action is necessary on your part.
