Sophos finds unauthorized RATs on server, takes partner portal offline

Quote:
Renowned security firm Sophos has taken down one of its partner portals (located at https://gpp.partners.sophos.com/) following the discovery of a compromise of the server on which it's hosted.

"Two unauthorized programs were found on the server, and our preliminary investigations indicate that these were designed to allow unauthorized remote access to information," announced the company, and added that they have taken the server in question offline for the time being.
