By: Carolyn Crandall, CMO & Chief Security Advocate – The nature and scope of existing security paradigms are becoming outdated under the blistering emergence of new identity-based threats in the public cloud. In a traditional setting, user accounts are the principal identity and, therefore, the primary security focus.
Written by the Attivo Research Team – Contributing members: Gorang Joshi, Anil Gupta, Saravanan Mohan – Microsoft and Volexity have confirmed the active exploitation of vulnerabilities published by Microsoft in Exchange Server. Security research has attributed the exploitation to the Advanced Persistent Threat group known as Hafnium operating out of China. After the initial compromise, Hafnium operators accessed email accounts and deployed web shells on the compromised servers, which they then used to steal data and expand the attack. Since enterprises deploy Outlook Web Access (OWA) on public networks, it enabled the group to compromise many organizations across a large set of industries, according to ThreatPost’s blog.

A secret, internal database that Microsoft uses to track bugs in its software was compromised by a hacking group more than four years ago, according to five former employees who spoke with Reuters.
Microsoft did not publicly disclose the extent of the breach when it discovered the hack in 2013.
The stolen database reportedly included descriptions of important vulnerabilities that had not yet been fixed.
