CISA and MS-ISAC Release Advisory on Compromised Account Used to Access State Government Organization

Today, CISA and the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) released a joint Cybersecurity Advisory (CSA), Threat Actor Leverages Compromised Account of Former Employee to Access State Government Organization to provide network defenders with the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) utilized by a threat actor and methods to protect against similar exploitation.

Following an incident response assessment of a state government organization’s network environment, analysis confirmed compromise through network administrator credentials of a former employee. This allowed the threat actor to successfully authenticate to an internal virtual private network (VPN) access point.

CISA and MS-ISAC encourage network defenders and organizations review the TTPs and implement the mitigations provided in the joint CSA. For more information, visit CISA’s Cross-Sector Cybersecurity Performance Goals.
