Qualys: Attackers trying to make breach exposure look worse than it is

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.
