Cisco said that a group of hackers they dubbed “UAT4356” had taken advantage of previously undiscovered weaknesses in its Adaptive Security Appliances.

According to technology company Cisco Systems, cybercriminals have compromised a few of its digital security products in order to get access to international government networks.

In a blog post on Wednesday, the business said that a group of hackers they dubbed “UAT4356” had taken advantage of previously undiscovered weaknesses in its Adaptive Security Appliances, which are devices that combine multiple digital security functions into one.

The business issued a statement asking clients to update their software “immediately.” It said the intrusions occurred early this year, but it provided no further information.

Because security equipment like routers and other so-called edge devices are located at the periphery of a target’s network and might be challenging to monitor, they have grown in popularity as a vector for experienced hackers.

Cisco issued a warning in its post, stating that it had observed indications that the UAT4356 hackers were considering “and possibly attacking” network devices made by Microsoft and other suppliers.

“At this time, there is no confirmed evidence of this activity affecting U.S. government networks,” according to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

On Wednesday, CISA published a notice regarding the vulnerabilities at Cisco.
