MOVEit Data Breach Update - May 22, 2024


On May 31, 2023, Progress Software announced a previously unknown vulnerability affecting its MOVEit® Transfer software application. The University of Missouri (“the University”) utilizes this application for managed file transfers. This vulnerability has affected thousands of MOVEit customers worldwide. The University confirmed that certain personal information transferred through MOVEit was among the information acquired by the unauthorized individuals who perpetrated this incident. The University mailed letters in September 2023 to individuals whose information was identified in the affected data set. We are providing additional notice now because a small percentage of those letters were returned as undeliverable.

WHAT HAPPENED: After Progress Software’s announcement on May 31st, the University immediately began investigating to determine if it was among the thousands of Progress Software customers affected. We engaged third-party cybersecurity experts to assist us in investigating and notified law enforcement. After a review of the documents on the MOVEit platform that was concluded on Sept. 7, 2023, we were able to identify the personal information that was contained in the affected data set.

WHAT INFORMATION WAS INVOLVED: The information involved may have included name, Social Security number and, in a small number of cases, health information.

WHAT WE ARE DOING: Following notice from MOVEit on May 31, 2023, we immediately took the MOVEit application offline and have applied the available patches to address the vulnerability.
