US spies warn of increase in supply chain vulnerabilities

U.S. intelligence officials have warned of increased attempts by hackers to exploit supply chain vulnerabilities. “Hackers are infecting a wide range of users through official software distribution channels…users do not expect malicious code to be introduced by updated from trusted software vendors,” said one intel community CIO. A recent report from MITRE also warned that government responses and information is “not fully coordinated or shared.” The report estimated the market for cyber insurance premiums at $2.5 billion, a figure that could increase to $7.5 billion in just a few years.
