SonicWall disclosed Friday night that highly sophisticated threat actors attacked its internal systems by exploiting a probable zero-day flaw on the company’s secure remote access products.

The Milpitas, Calif.-based platform security vendor said the compromised SMB-oriented Secure Mobile Access (SMA) 100 series product is used to provide employees and users with remote access to internal resources. SonicWall initially said its NetExtender VPN client tool was also exploited in the attack, but updated its guidance a day later to indicate NetExtender doesn’t have a zero-day vulnerability after all.

SMA 100 series administrators are advised to create specific access rules or disable Virtual Office and HTTPS administrative access from the Internet, SonicWall said Saturday. A day earlier, SonicWall told SMA 100 series partners and customers to either use a firewall to only allow SSL-VPN connections to the SMA appliance from known/whitelisted IPs or configure whitelist access on the SMA directly itself.
