Analysis: Microsoft Exchange Server Hacks
Attacks targeting unpatched Microsoft Exchange email servers have included DearCry ransomware.

This edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of the Microsoft Exchange on-premises server hacks – from who might have leaked the vulnerability exploits to how ransomware gangs are taking advantage of the flaws.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG’s Jeremy Kirk discuss who might be behind the Microsoft Exchange exploit leak;
  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz discuss whether law enforcement is doing enough to help blunt the cybercrime business model;
  • The creator of the "zero trust" model, John Kindervag, describe missteps in carrying out the strategy.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the March 5 and March 12 editions, which respectively discuss key takeaways from the series of breaches tied to flaws in the Accellion File Transfer appliance and the lessons learned from the Emotet takedown.
