Kaseya VSA Users Hit by Ransomware, (Fri, Jul 2nd)

We are aware that some MSSP’s customers (Managed Security Services Providers) have been hit by a ransomware. It seems that four(4) MSSP’s have been affected until now. The ransomware was spread through the remote management solution “VSA”  provided by Kaseya[1]. This looks to be a brand new type of supply chain attack.

What we know so far? Kaseya requested all customers to shutdown their on-premises  servers (the cloud version is already down) because, once compromised, prevent access to the device.

The ransomware is dropped to  c:kworkingagent.exe[2].

If you’re a Kaseya’s VSA user, please check as soon as possible with your representative to mitigate this attack. We will update this diary with more information when available.
