Ransomware Thread: One day a user clicked on a malicious link which caused some havoc - the company files got encryped with ransomware. Upon investigation looking at the headers of the email it was noted that the email had come from one of the DR servers. How? Why?

Apparently the Exchange Admin had decided to carry out a DR test but not considered including the spam filter failover as part of the test. It was only meant to be a short while I mean what could possibly go wrong?

Also this was a known threat so why didnt the IPS block it?
Well turns out the DR mailbox IP’s had been added to an access policy but that policy had not been configured with file analysis. Therefore the email attachment went undetected - passed the firewall and since no spam filter was there ended up in the users mailbox.
