30,000 U.S. Microsoft Exchange Server Email Software Hack

If your agency is using an exchange server or a Hosted Exchange server (not Office 365 or Gmail) – you may need our help. Contact us immediately, as it may not be too late.

At least 30,000 organizations across the United States — including a significant number of small businesses, towns, cities and local governments — have over the past few days been hacked by an unusually aggressive Chinese cyber espionage unit that’s focused on stealing email from victim organizations. The espionage group is exploiting four newly-discovered flaws in Microsoft Exchange Server email software, and has seeded hundreds of thousands of victim organizations worldwide with tools that give the attackers total, remote control over affected systems. Learn more in this article.

It’s likely that there are still details to come about this hack — so far, there hasn’t been an official list of organizations that have been compromised, just a vague picture of the large scale and high-severity of the attack.

If you think you need our help, please email us ASAP.
