Hackers are actively exploiting a zero day vulnerability in MOVEit Transfer to steal data from Organisations. MOVEit Transfer is a managed file transfer solution that allows for secure transfer of files using protocols like SFTP, SCP an HTTP. Progress, the parent company behind MOVEit Transfer released a security advisory warning of a critical SQL injection vulnerability that allows for privilege escalation and potential unauthorised access on target systems. The vulnerability does not have a CVE assigned. There are around 2,500 exposed MOVEit Transfer servers with most of them located in the US. A number of organisations have reported being breached and having data stolen with the attacks having started over the US Memorial Day holiday, when there are fewer staff monitoring the systems.
