Google is facing a hack attack against its Indian operations, with hackers targeting its cloud services and the infrastructure it uses to deliver those services.
The breach of the Indian subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. was announced on Thursday, a day after Google reported its first quarterly loss in six years.
The attack, dubbed “Carpool,” took place on the company’s cloud infrastructure, affecting a small number of Google services, according to the company.
The hack, which affected a few thousand accounts, affected its cloud infrastructure in India, according the Google security team.
Google has been working to improve the security of its cloud platforms and is offering free credit monitoring and troubleshooting services to its users.
Google said the attacks did not affect Google apps or services.
India is one of the most populous countries in the world and is home to many Indian startups and internet companies.
Google did not disclose the exact number of accounts impacted by the attack.
The company is investigating the hack.
