Dear Nieto Technology Partners Valued Client,
As you may be aware from recent media reports, there has been a cyberattack on Microsoft® Corp.’s email server software. The cyberattack is believed to have infected tens of thousands of businesses, government offices, and schools in the U.S., according to people briefed on the matter. You can read a recent Reuters article about the situation here.
Microsoft has said that it appears that the hackers have been exploiting several flaws in their software to gain access to systems and data, as well as to install software that allows the attackers to maintain a persistent presence in the environment even after patching.
As our valued client, we want to reassure you that Nieto Technology Partners is aware of this situation and we are actively investigating and monitoring our systems. We have fully patched all relevant systems with the emergency patches Microsoft provided on March 2, 2021. We are also in contact with our vendors to ensure they are investigating this situation on their side, as well. So far, we don’t believe our systems have been compromised, but we will continue keep a watchful eye for any anomalies that app ear.
