Cisco Systems confirmed it was one of the tech companies targeted by this week's CCleaner cyberattack, according to an announcement Wednesday. Researchers said the hack targeted and intended to compromise companies' intellectual property.
The Talos report was published Monday, prompting Cisco to further investigate its C2 servers. While the files were verified as "genuine," Cisco uncovered a list of major tech organizations in the delivery code, including Samsung, VMware, Sony and Microsoft. Researchers confirmed at least 20 companies and their data were targeted.
Researchers recommend any consumer who was attacked should not just remove or update their CCleaner software. Instead, computers should be backed-up and restored to remove the backdoor version of CCleaner and its accompanying malware.
