The White House declined to name the person responsible for the cyberattack on Microsoft’s software. This was announced by the Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Jake Sullivan.
“Today, I am not able to point out who is in charge. But I promise that we will be able to identify who is responsible for this attack shortly,” he said. According to him, the American authorities will directly indicate who, in their opinion, carried out this cyberattack.
Earlier, it was reported that US President Joe Biden’s administration is exploring options for responding to the hacking of networks of companies and enterprises through Microsoft’s Exchange Server software. It was noted that the corporation is in contact with the administration and government departments on the issue of ensuring the security of companies that could potentially suffer from the actions of hackers.
Microsoft has released an update to Exchange Server that fixes a vulnerability exploited by hackers. However, according to cybersecurity experts, in this case, it is necessary to conduct a full analysis of all systems and programs that were involved in the hacking. Experts are sure that if a company uses Microsoft Exchange, it is highly likely that their systems were hacked.
