US orders federal agencies to update or remove certain VMWare products from networks


Article content

WASHINGTON — The U.S. cybersecurity watchdog agency on Wednesday ordered federal officials to update or remove a slew of products from VMWare Inc., a digital services company.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said in an advisory that hackers had managed to reverse engineer recent updates to VMWare products and used the knowledge to target old versions and hack into unpatched devices.

VMWare did not immediately return a message requesting comment.
