The hacking group responsible for the supply-chain attack targeting VoIP company 3CX also breached two critical infrastructure organizations in the energy sector and two financial trading organizations using the trojanized X_TRADER application, according to a report by Symantec.
Among the two affected critical infrastructure organizations, one is located in the US while the other is in Europe, Symantec told Bleeping Computer.
The report of other organizations also being breached comes a day after Mandiant revealed that trojanized X_TRADER application was the cause of the 3CX breach.
“The attackers behind these breaches clearly have a successful template for software supply chain attacks and further similar attacks cannot be ruled out,” Symantec said in its report.
Last month, several security researchers reported that the 3CX Desktop App had malware in it. The company confirmed the same and released an update for the Desktop App.
