A global wave of cyberattacks and data breaches began in January 2021 after four zero-day exploits were discovered in Microsoft Exchange Servers, giving attackers full access to user emails and passwords on affected servers.

As of 9 March 2021, it was estimated that 250,000 servers fell victim to the attacks, including servers belonging to around 30,000 organisations in the United States, 7,000 servers in the United Kingdom,[1] as well as the European Banking Authority, the Norwegian Parliament, and Chile's Commission for the Financial Market (CMF).[2][3][4][5][6][7]
