The global cyberattack on Microsoft’s Exchange servers is on a scale rarely seen before, says Michael McKinnon, CIO of Tesserent, previously known as Pure Security.

McKinnon told CDN the attackers, believed to be state-backed actors in China, gave Australian companies and government agencies little time to install security patches distributed by Microsoft before they launched their attack here.

He said it’s likely most businesses running an Exchange server have been infected.
