Cloud security company Qualys says the data breach was limited to Accellion’s file transfer system. The company also shared intelligence that the attackers behind the incident are engaging in a tactic to make the exposed data set look more voluminous than it actually is. An independent, third-party forensic firm has verified the company’s initial determination that the attack did not jump from the file transfer appliance server to Qualys’ larger corporate network. The update comes a week after their CEO and chair of the board, Philippe Courtot, resigned from the company.
