Microsoft Exchange hack - and how to detect it with ExeonTrace
Dear <<First Name>>,

The hack of the Microsoft Exchange servers is making ever greater waves. After it became known last week that the on-premise Microsoft Exchange Servers 2013 through 2019 have been affected on a large scale, more and more details are becoming known about how the hack occurred - and how large the extent is. Germany and Switzerland are highly affected, the German Federal Office for Information Security even declared the IT threat level red, which means the situation is extremely critical, resulting in outages of many services and regular operations that cannot be maintained. We would therefore like to dedicate this newsletter to this hack and show how it can be detected with the help of ExeonTrace in order to prevent further spreading.

I wish you an interesting read.

Best regards
Chief Marketing Officer
