Microsoft Exchange Flaws May Have Led To 30,000 US Organizations' Email Systems Being Compromised

Mar 6, 2021

Microsoft Exchange Flaws May Have Led To 30,000 US Organizations' Email Systems Being Compromised   Share: More than 30,000 U.S. organizations' email systems reportedly have been compromised by a Chinese hacking group, through a recently patched flaw in Microsoft’s Exchange Server software. What Happened: On Tuesday, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT ) announced that its Exchange email product had been hacked and that the attack came from China. In a  blog post , Microsoft's corporate vice president of customer security and trust, Tom Burt, said the company had identified a "state-sponsored threat actor" operating from China that it referred to as "Hafnium." According to  a report yesterday by KrebsOnSecurity , at least 30,000 organizations across the U.S. have been affected due to flaws in the Exchange Server software. Reuters  also has reported on the scope of the attack, citing a person familiar with the U.S. government’s response, and pegs the number at more than 20,000 organizations. The  White House  has come out to warn about the attack. Press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday, “This is a significant vulnerability that could have far-reaching impacts. First and foremost, this is an active threat.” On Thursday, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan in a  tweet  urged the companies to update their software. Similarly, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency has issued  directives  ordering all federal civilian departments and agencies to update the software running on Microsoft Exchange servers.
