Microsoft, who is coordinating with the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Task Force, is advising all organizations to scan their endpoints for vulnerabilities and to apply security updates or patches to their devices as soon as possible.
Experts fear the fallout from this latest Microsoft Exchange-based attack, which gave attackers remote control of affected devices and their data, could be potentially at least as damaging as the SolarWinds exploit, if not more.
The news follows a recent congressional hearing on the SolarWinds attack, where business leaders have pointed out that information about internal security breaches at software companies can take a long time to be disclosed. Cybersecurity specialists also testified that commonplace cybersecurity protocols are failing to patch vulnerable devices fast enough to mitigate further compromise.
