INCIDENT

Axis Communications, a Swedish maker of network cameras and other physical security solutions used by government and private sector organizations globally, suffered a cyberattack earlier this month that disrupted its operations, company officials said.
“On the night between Saturday February 19 and Sunday February 20, Axis was the subject of a cyberattack. Using several combinations of social engineering, attackers were able to sign in as a user despite protective mechanisms such as multi-factor authentication,” company officials said in an advisory posted.
“Inside, the attackers used advanced methods to elevate their access and eventually gain access to directory services."
