The U.S. government’s cybersecurity agency says hackers backed by the Iranian government compromised a federal agency that failed to patch against Log4Shell , a vulnerability fixed almost a year ago. In an alert published Thursday , the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said that a federal civilian executive branch organization (FCEB) was breached by Iranian government hackers earlier in February. CISA did not name the breached FCEB agency, a list that includes the likes of the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of the Treasury, and the Federal Trade Commission, and CISA spokesperson Michael Feldman declined to comment when reached by TechCrunch. CISA said it first observed the suspected activity on the unnamed federal agency’s network months later in April while conducting retrospective analysis using Einstein, a government-run intrusion detection system used to protect federal civilian agency networks
