Over 600 Microsoft customers targeted since July"Since May, we have notified more than 140 resellers and technology service providers that have been targeted by Nobelium," said Tom Burt, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft.
"We continue to investigate, but to date we believe as many as 14 of these resellers and service providers have been compromised."
As Burt added, in all, more than 600 Microsoft customers were attacked thousands of times, although with a very low rate of success between July and October.
"These attacks have been a part of a larger wave of Nobelium activities this summer. In fact, between July 1 and October 19 this year, we informed 609 customers that they had been attacked 22,868 times by Nobelium, with a success rate in the low single digits," Burt said.
"By comparison, prior to July 1, 2021, we had notified customers about attacks from all nation-state actors 20,500 times over the past three years."
