Over the past several weeks, Bibliotheca has worked closely with Kaseya to update our on-premises server to full functionality. After extensive testing, we are now satisfied with the server’s status and confident that all identified security gaps have been eliminated.
Bibliotheca’s support system is now back online and operating normally. Any customers wishing to log in to VSA will be prompted to set up two-factor authentication. This requirement cannot be bypassed. Several authenticator apps work well with VSA, including the popular Google Authenticator.
We know this has been a difficult time for our customers. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we worked to ensure the best possible security for our remote access system.
Thank you for your patience!
On Friday, July 2nd 2021, we were made aware of the security incident caused by a cyberattack on Kaseya, and we immediately shut down our VSA server. At the time of the shutdown—and presently—there was no indication that we had been affected by the data breach. Since then, by using a specifically designed detection tool, we have confirmed that our server was NOT compromised. We have no reason to believe any Bibliotheca customer or personal data has been compromised. We are working with Kaseya to continue to monitor the situation and will update this communication once we confirm with Kaseya that it is safe to bring their VSA server online again. Please check Kaseya’s website for the most up to date information.
