How Did the Breach Occur?

This Maximus breach occurred like all the other MOVEit-related data breaches. The file-transfer service was exposed by a Zero-Day vulnerability, and the C10P ransomware gang began taking advantage of the vulnerability almost immediately. The gang quickly broke into file databases and servers attached to the MOVEit software and stole as much data as possible for well over 150 different companies. The stolen data was leveraged to try and obtain ransom payouts, and anyone that doesn't pay will have their data distributed by the gang.

When Did This Breach Occur?

This breach likely occurred near the beginning of June, like so many other MOVEit breaches did. It could have taken Maximus a few weeks or even months to discover the breach and secure its systems.
