CISA has released analyses of five new pieces of malware being used in attacks against known bugs in Pulse Connect Secure appliances.
CISA Director Jen Easterly said the agency's new Joint Cuber Defense Collaborative seeks imagination and innovation in the hacker community to help secure critical infrastructure.
A whole of government approach, along with collaboration from the private sector, is key to disrupting the ransomware ecosystem.
CISA investigated an enterprise intrusion in which the attacker had legitimate credentials for the Pulse Secure VPN and then deployed the Supernova malware on a SolarWinds Orion instance.
President Biden plans to nominate Jen Easterly, a former Army officer and NSA official, to head the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
