The cybersecurity company Malwarebytes has been hacked. The popular security software company says that some of your emails were recently compromised. They point out that the one who did it is the same as attacked SolarWinds a few weeks ago by hacking various agencies of the US government. Whoever is behind the attacks seems to be having a great time in recent weeks.

According has indicated Malwarebytes, they did not use software manufactured by SolarWinds, so they have not been attacked due to that attack itself as has happened to many other companies. However, have been attacked by the same hacking team and using a different technique.

Apparently the attackers they managed to access internal company emails getting access to Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure environments from Malwarebytes. With access here, they were able to reach different internal company emails.

Either way, They say that Malwarebytes products themselves (their antivirus and security systems) have not been affected and they are still safe to use. Had these products been affected, the issue would have been much more catastrophic, especially if we take into account that millions of people trust and use their security systems.

The ravages of the attacker to SolarWinds

He attack on SolarWinds was one of the most important of 2020 and not in vain. SolarWinds provides software to tens of thousands of customers whose data has been compromised overnight by a single attack.

If you know that the attacker got at that time steal tools from hacking FireEye and access an unspecified number of Microsoft repositories among other things. With this material he has subsequently been able to carry out other attacks more easily.

Despite the popularity of the attacks in recent weeks, it is not clear who is behind them. United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo publicly accused to Russia: “We can say that it is quite clear that the Russians are related to this activity.” In any case, there is no strong evidence for this and Russia has denied any connection to these attacks.
