ClickStudios has told its global customer base to start changing passwords following a breach that resulted in a supply chain attack.

The Australian software company, which makes the Passwordstate password manager, suffered a breach between April 20 and April 22. CSIS Security Group, which dealt with the breach, posted the attack details.

The supply chain attack was initiated via an update of the Passwordstate app.

In a post, CSIS said its researchers found the attack during an investigation. “As recommended by ClickStudios, if you are using Passwordstate, please reset all the stored passwords, and especially VPNs, Firewall, Switches, local accounts or any server passwords etc,” said CSIS, which dubbed this incident/malware “Moserpass”.
