Several US federal government agencies and 'several hundred' companies and organizations in the US have been compromised in a global cyberattack conducted by Russian cybercriminals. The attackers exploited vulnerabilities in MOVEit, a piece of widely used software developed by Progress Software, for transferring data securely. Despite no significant impacts being reported on federal civilian agencies, the Department of Energy confirmed breaches, including one affecting Oak Ridge Associated Universities and another linked to the department's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico. Additionally, Johns Hopkins University, Georgia's state-wide university system, and other entities have reported potential breaches, raising concerns over sensitive personal and financial information being compromised. The attack has heightened the urgency for remediation and defense against ransomware and cyberattacks, particularly with the discovery of a second vulnerability in MOVEit software.
