US PSE grapples with implications of massive MOVEit Transfer cyber breach


In June, a vulnerability in the data file transfer service MOVEit Transfer impacted numerous US postsecondary institutions and other organizations. The software was purchased by several institutions to store and securely transfer sensitive data files. However, a security flaw in the software resulted in a cyber breach that has exposed the personal, financial, and/or health-related information of students and staff. Ransomware syndicate Cl0p has taken responsibility for the security breach. The software firm has since issued a series of patches to address the vulnerabilities.
