Iranian hackers ransack Citrix, make off with 6TB+ of emails, biz docs, internal secrets – they had to be told by the FBI that they were hacked at all

Citrix today warned its customers that foreign hackers romped through its internal company network and stole corporate secrets.

The enterprise software giant – which services businesses, the American military, and various US government agencies – said it was told by the FBI on Wednesday that miscreants had accessed Citrix’s IT systems and exfiltrated a significant amount of data.

According to infosec firm Resecurity, which had earlier alerted the Feds and Citrix to the cyber-intrusion, at least six terabytes of sensitive internal files were swiped from the US corporation by the Iranian-backed IRIDIUM hacker gang. The spies hit in December, and Monday this week, we’re told, lifting emails, blueprints, and other documents, after bypassing multi-factor login systems and slipping into Citrix’s VPNs.
