Russian group behind major Microsoft breach suspected to be behind HPE attack

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. said a suspected nation-state actor gained unauthorised access to its cloud-based email system, pointing a finger at a group also suspected in a recent Microsoft Corp. hack.

The entity is “believed to be the threat actor Midnight Blizzard, the state-sponsored actor also known as Cozy Bear,” HPE said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.

Pro Tips:
  • Blame the hackers
  • Insinuate Russia, China, Iran, DPRK did it - no proof required
  • Never mention your lack of patching
  • Never mention your bad password policy
Works every time to deflect responsibility.
