What Happened?

On May 31, 2023, Fiduciary Outsourcing, LLC was alerted by a third-party vendor about a security vulnerability in the MOVEit Transfer solution, which was actively exploited by unauthorized actors. This resulted in potential unauthorized access to data stored on MOVEit Transfer. By June 2, 2023, MOVEit provided patches to fix the vulnerability. It was later discovered on March 1, 2024, that files containing personal information, specifically names, may have been accessed by an unauthorized party. Although no broader network security was compromised, the incident is significant as it involves personal data.
