ConnectWise warns of ongoing ransomware attacks targeting its customers
Hackers are trying to break into on-premise ConnectWise Automate systems and install ransomware on customer networks.
ConnectWise, a Florida-based company that provides remote IT management solutions, is warning customers that hackers are targeting its software to gain access to client networks and install ransomware.
ConnectWise Automate is a software package that lets IT admins manage a company’s computer fleet and other IT assets from a central location. It’s a classic remote access/management solution that many large companies use when they have assets spread across a large number of locations.
The software is available in a cloud-based offering, but also as on-premise servers, for more secure setups.
