Malwarebytes, a U.S. – based cybersecurity firm, has reportedly been intruded on by the same nation-state actor behind the SolarWinds cyberattack. In an official release, Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of Malwarebytes, stated that although the same threat actors were involved in this breach, it was not related to the SolarWinds supply chain attack. Instead, Kleczynski said that the intruders abused privileged access to Microsoft Office 365 and Azure environments to breach their network. Malwarebytes claims this breach is not related to the SolarWinds hack since the company does not rely on any SolarWinds software in its daily routine. Furthermore, the company says hackers did not access any of its environments, so all products remain safe to use.
