Up to 1,500 companies affected by ransomware attack targeting computer software management company

Several small and medium-sized businesses have been affected by a ransomware attack targeting Kaseya VSA, a software management company widely used by managed service providers who manage the IT needs of healthcare companies, including many dental practices.

The ransomware attack occurred on July 2 and affected up to 1,500 companies, according to a Kaseya Council. The advisory provides insight into Kaseya’s ongoing investigation and steps to work with Managed Service Providers to prevent the spread of malware.

The US Agency for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security and the FBI advise companies to ensure that their backups are up to date and stored in an easily retrievable location, separate from the organization’s network.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency announced the launch of a new US government website which helps businesses protect themselves against increasing ransomware attacks. The site includes ransomware alerts, reports, and resources from the CISA and FBI.
