Today the State of Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services issued an announcement that hackers broke into a server containing sensitive information the state was housing.

It was reported that the breach happened in May, and due to the number of records potentially breached, which they are estimating at 1.3 million.

The fact that they are tracing an attack to a singular server compels me to write not just for the benefit of CounterTack, and not just to say ‘I told you so’ either. But really, its yet another example of how organizations simply do not have a visible way to trace behavior when an attack starts.
