You may have seen the news about a supply-chain ransomware attack on Kaseya which affected numerous businesses over the holiday weekend. The targeted company, Kaseya, provides tools to Managed Services Providers (MSPs) like Mytech. One of these tools, “Kaseya VSA,” was recently compromised by an international cybercrime organization, then used to attack roughly 60 MSPs and, by extension, up to 1,500 end-user organizations.
UPDATE – July 7: Microsoft has now published a patch to mitigate this vulnerability, and Mytech is already working on deploying it to our clients as securely and non-disruptively as possible. Further information about this process has been emailed out to our clients. If you experience any issues or have questions about this out-of-band patch, please contact your Mytech team for more info.

With our philosophy of “presume breach” sophisticated threats like these are mitigated by the security measures we deploy through our SmartBusiness Suite, which can detect pre-attack network changes and prevent the call-and-response tactics that allow further access into a network.
