MSP’s are managed service providers, and as the article explains, are a prime target as they have access to many varied companies IT  through remote login.

Web South are not really in this business model, only using remote support when needed and our customers are not affected at this time. It is an important and timely reminder to remain vigilant, keep systems updated and scan for problems, and if any found, report them as soon as possible to minimize the damage.
