Sisence Data Breach, CISA Urges To Reset Login Credentials

In response to a recent data breach at Sisense, a provider of data analytics services, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) advised customers to reset their login credentials.

Sisense’s AI and machine learning-driven analytics platform is used for data collection and analysis by various industries, including healthcare, technology, manufacturing, and finance.

In this case, users’ login credentials and secrets to access Sisense services may have been compromised. 

CISA claims that anonymous independent security researchers discovered this most recent breach.

Brian Krebs said the breach and claimed that “many millions of credentials” may have been affected by the attack, suggesting a significant breach of personal data.

This is a supply chain attack, he claimed, affecting hundreds of tenants and millions of credentials. The CISO of Sisense just sent out this message to its customers.

CISA Recommendations

CISA advises users of Sisense to:

  • Reset credentials and secrets potentially exposed to or used to access Sisense services.
  • Investigate—and report to CISA—any suspicious activity involving credentials potentially exposed to or used to access Sisense services.\

The CISA’s statement limited information on the breach’s specifics, such as how it affected Sisense and how much data was exposed.

“CISA is taking an active role in collaborating with private industry partners to respond to this incident, especially as it relates to impacted critical infrastructure sector organizations. We will provide updates as more information becomes available,” CISA said.

The supply chain is still the hardest to safeguard and a refuge for cybercriminals, as evidenced by the most recent breaches revealed by MGM Resorts and Caesars Palace.

Therefore, users are urged to be on the lookout for any strange activity that may indicate that their information has been exploited.
