Microsoft puts tens of thousands of companies at risk of being hacked

More than 20,000 US organizations are at risk of compromise due to vulnerabilities in the messaging and collaboration software Microsoft Exchange Server.

According to Reuters, citing a knowledgeable informant, the data obtained during the investigation shows that a vulnerability in Microsoft Exchange Server can be used for large-scale hacker attacks and espionage.

According to a US investigation, tens of thousands of organizations in Asia and Europe are also at risk. What’s more, the hacks continue despite the hot fixes Microsoft released on Tuesday.

Microsoft, which initially said the hacks were “limited and targeted attacks,” declined to comment on the scale of the problem on Friday, but said it is working with government agencies and security companies to help customers.

One scan of connected devices showed that only 10% of affected devices had been patched by Friday. Since installing the patch does not eliminate loopholes, US officials are in a hurry to figure out how to notify all victims.

All victims seem to be using the web version of the Outlook email client and hosting it on their computers instead of relying on cloud services. The US Federal Agency for Cyber ​​and Infrastructure Security did not comment on the situation.
