Energy Department among ‘several’ federal agencies hit by MOVEit breach

“Multiple sources confirmed ...Energy’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad, New Mexico, experienced data breaches due to the MOVEit vulnerability. The incident did not affect any internal Energy Department-run systems, but it did impact agency data at those locations. Sources said Energy is treating it as a “major incident."“

“The breach impacted the personally identifiable information of potentially tens of thousands of individuals, including Energy employees and contractors, according to sources.“

“Upon learning that records from two DOE entities were compromised in the global cyberattack on the file-sharing software MOVEit Transfer, DOE took immediate steps to prevent further exposure to the vulnerability and notified the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The Department has notified Congress and is working with law enforcement, CISA, and the affected entities to investigate the incident and mitigate impacts from the breach“
