As some of you may have read in the news over the weekend a sophisticated ransomware attack targeted the Florida-based service management vendor Kaseya before spreading through corporate networks that use its software.
The impact was far-reaching, impacting hundreds of businesses in the US on the 4th of July and it led to the closure of 500 COOP supermarkets in Sweden.
A notice on the Kaseya website warned customers that use its systems management platform, called VSA, to shut down their servers. Kaseya provides management, monitoring and automation software for managed service providers (MSPs), this attack has led to ransomware infections among the company’s customers around the world.
Network ROI does not use Kaseya so Network ROI and our clients are not impacted by this attack. But this case highlights the growing concern in the cyber-security world about so-called supply chain attacks where hackers can claim multiple victims by attacking their supplier directly.
Ransomware is a growing, global cyber threat, and all organisations should take immediate steps to limit risk and follow our advice on how to put in place robust defences to protect their networks.
