Up to 1,500 businesses affected, Kaseya says

One of the largest mass ransomware attacks ever has compromised up to 1,500 businesses, according to an update this morning from the Florida IT company Kaseya, which hackers associated with the REvil gang used to spread their malicious software. Kaseya offers its VSA platform to managed service providers to whom other companies outsource IT functions. The company said only 50 of its 35,000 customers have been breached, but given the reach of its MSP customers, 50 victims can quickly multiply into many, many more. Over the weekend, President Biden directed “the full resources of the government to investigate this incident." Tim Starks has more at CyberScoop.

If it's successful, state officials could deploy the technology on a yet-to-be-determined stretch of highway. Ryan Johnston has the story.
