Italy’s cybersecurity body sounds alarm on large-scale computer hacking attack

Italy’s National Cybersecurity Agency (ACN) said on 5 February issued warning to organisations to take action to protect their systems after thousands of computer servers around the world have been targeted by a ransomware hacking attack.

ACN director general Roberto Baldoni said that the hacking attack sought to exploit a software vulnerability, adding it was on a massive scale.

Earlier, Italy’s ANSA news agency reported that servers had been compromised in other European countries such as France and Finland as well as the United States and Canada.

As per reports, dozens of Italian organisations were likely to have been affected and many more had been warned to take action to avoid being locked out of their systems.

On Sunday, teTelecom Italia customers reported internet problems, however, the two issues were not believed to be related. Meanwhile, U.S. cybersecurity officials said they were assessing the impact of the reported incidents.

“CISA is working with our public and private sector partners to assess the impacts of these reported incidents and providing assistance where needed,” the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said.

Italian cyber security agency warns organizations of ransomware attack: reports

Italy’s National Cybersecurity Agency, ACN, warned organizations to act in protecting their computer systems as thousands of computer servers around the globe were under attack by ransomware targeting VMware (WMW.N) ESXi servers, according to reports

Roberto Baldoni, the ACN director general, told Reuters the attack was looking to find and expose a vulnerability in the software, adding that the attack was taking place on a large scale.

A VMware representative told the news agency they were aware of the incidents and released patches to protect systems against exposing a two-year-old vulnerability that was being exploited back in February 2021.


All customers who did not apply the patch were urged by VMware to do so.

“Security hygiene is a key component of preventing ransom attacks, and customers who are running versions of ESXi impacted by CVE-2021-21974, and have not yet applied the two-year-old patch, should take action as directed in the advisory,” a representative from VMware said on Sunday.

The attacks targeted VMware servers in places like France, Finland, Canada and the U.S., according to ACN.

Any organizations that were targeted could become locked out of their systems because of the ransomware. 


According to Reuters, dozens of organizations in Italy were likely to be attacked, and many more were warned to apply the patches.

Cybersecurity officials in the U.S. were assessing the situation.

You may not care where you download software from, but malware does

One of the pieces of advice that security practitioners have been giving out for the past couple of decades, if not longer, is that you should only download software from reputable sites. As far as computer security advice goes, this seems like it should be fairly simple to practice.

But even when such advice is widely-shared, people still download files from distinctly non-reputable places and get compromised as a result. I have been a reader of Neowin for over a couple of decades now, and a member of its forum for almost that long. But that is not the only place I participate online: for a little over three years, I have been volunteering my time to moderate a couple of Reddit’s forums (subreddits) that provide both general computing support as well as more specific advice on removing malware. In those subreddits, I have helped people over and over again as they attempted to recover from the fallout of compromised computers. Attacks these days are usually financially motivated, but there are other unanticipated consequences as well. I should state this is not something unique to Reddit’s users. These types of questions also come up in online chats on various Discord servers where I volunteer my time as well.

One thing I should point out is that both the Discord and Reddit services skew to a younger demographic than social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. I also suspect they are younger than the average Neowin member. These people grew up digitally literate, and have had access to advice and discussions about safe computing practices available since pre-school.

A breakdown in communications

Despite having the advantage of having grown up with computers and information on securing them, how is it that these people have fallen victim to certain patterns of attacks? And from the information security practitioner’s side, where exactly is the disconnect occurring between what we’re telling people to do (or not do, as the case may be), and what they are doing (or, again, not doing)?

Sometimes, people will openly admit that they knew better but just did a “dumb thing,” trusting the source of the software when they knew wasn’t…
