VMware is the latest company to confirm that it had its systems breached in the recent SolarWinds attacks but denied further exploitation attempts.

The company said that the hackers did not make any efforts to further exploiting their access after deploying the backdoor now tracked as Sunburst or Solarigate.

"[W]hile we have identified limited instances of the vulnerable SolarWinds Orion software in our own internal environment, our own internal investigation has not revealed any indication of exploitation," the company said in a statement.
"This has also been confirmed by SolarWinds own investigations to date," VMware added.
