BACKGROUND:

Morgan Stanley confirmed a client data breach through their third party vendor Guidehouse. Guidehouse provides account maintenance services to Morgan Stanley’s StockPlan Connect business. Although the data was encrypted, the attackers also stole encryption keys.  The attackers exploited an Accellion FTA vulnerability in January of this year. The files stolen included: name; address (last known address); date of birth; Social Security numbers and corporate company name.
