There’s a software called MOVEit, and it’s used for moving various diles back and forth. Simple enough, except it has a vulnerability in it that has left companies, as well as some US federal agencies reeling under a ransomware attack. The problem started about 2 weeks ago, but has spread in multiple locations including Johns Hopkins University, as well as Georgia’s state-wide university system. At the time we cover this, the impacts are not well defined across the various targets, but I’m sure the coming weeks will reveal more.

Several US federal government agencies have been hit in a global cyberattack that exploits a vulnerability in widely used software, according to a top US cybersecurity agency.
