Microsoft announced new cyberattacks by hackers who hacked SolarWinds

Microsoft has reported that it has recorded new attacks from allegedly Russian hackers who hacked into SolarWinds. This is stated in a statement by the corporation.

According to Microsoft, the hackers tried to crack the passwords of firms in the digital and financial sectors, as well as government agencies, civil society and research organizations. They are located in 36 countries around the world.

“These recent actions were largely unsuccessful, the bulk of the targets were not hacked, we have so far received data on three hacked organizations,” the corporation said.

It is noted that the listed organizations were notified of cyberattack attempts.

Earlier, the intelligence services of the United States and Great Britain circulated a list of recommendations for protection against hacker attacks, allegedly related to the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR). The recommendations come after the official announcement that Russian intelligence agencies were “behind the hacking of SolarWinds software” last year. The preparation of the document was attended by employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Infrastructure and Cybersecurity Agency (CISA) of the United States.
