Anydesk Production Server Breached

AnyDesk recently confirmed a cyberattack compromising their production systems, resulting in the theft of source code and private code signing keys. The remote access software, popular among enterprises and threat actors alike, serves 170,000 customers, including notable organizations like 7-Eleven and Samsung.

AnyDesk detected the attack on their servers and enlisted CrowdStrike’s help to respond. While details on data theft remain undisclosed, the company assured users of system safety. They revoked security certificates, replaced compromised systems, and advised users to update to the latest version with new code signing certificates.

Though AnyDesk denies token theft, they revoked web portal passwords and advised users to change them as a precaution. The company replaced stolen code signing certificates, evident in the new software version 8.0.8. The certificate transition ensures continued security for users.
