‘Midnight Blizzard’ Breached HPE Email Months Before Microsoft Hack

The renowned technology company, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), fell victim to an alarming security breach months before a widely-publicized Microsoft hack incident. This intrusion, reported to be led by the cyber-espionage operation known as ‘Midnight Blizzard’, involved the exfiltration of data from various HPE email accounts last May. In addition, it has been speculated that the same Russian APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) group implicated in the subsequent SolarWinds attacks was behind this earlier breach in HPE’s security.
