News Wolters Kluwer CCH Taken Down:
[Image: hacker-keyhole-silhouette-illustration.jpg?imwidth=450]

             A Cloud Accounting service was taken down when malware was discovered on its systems. A statement was released and a part of it reads as follows: 

      "On Monday, May 6, we started seeing technical anomalies in a number of our platforms and applications. We immediately started investigating and discovered the installation of malware. As a precaution, in parallel, we decided to take a broader range of platforms and applications offline. With this action, we aimed to quickly limit the impact this malware could have had, giving us the opportunity to investigate the issue with assistance from third-party forensics consultants and work on a solution. Unfortunately, this impacted our communication channels and limited our ability to share updates."

      The type of malware that discovered has not yet been disclosed. To add to this, there is some speculation on whether the service provider itself was transparent as it should have been. A security researcher was able to pick out some holes in their user permissions, and this lead to the discovery of the malware. 

      Original article can be found here.

      That was the news folks, have a good week, and stay safe out there.
