Cybersecurity firm, SonicWall, Inc. is investigating a breach of its Secure Mobile Access (SMA) 100 series, a product that they state "simplifies end-to-end secure remote access to corporate resources."
The firm originally believed the compromise also affected a version of its NetExtender VPN, but they have since been able to eliminate that possibility.
As part of the investigation, experts are determining if the hackers used a vulnerability that has recently been discovered in the SMA 100 networking device. Also, investigators are not clear if this breach is connected to the Russian-based attacks against private and public entities around the country.
SonicWall assures its clients that the compromise does not involve SonicWall firewalls, SMA 1000 series, or SonicWave access points. Andrew Martin "SonicWall Says It Was Victim of 'Sophisticated' Hack" www.bloomberg.com (Jan. 23, 2021).
