SharePoint exploit actively being exploited by cyber attackers.

CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) are warning SharePoint users to stay vigilant, as cyber attackers exploit a critical privilege escalation vulnerability, that combined with another bug can lead to remote code execution. The flaw in question is enabling hackers to obtain admin privileges on unpatched servers, which can lead to catastrophic results.

More about the exploit can be read here. 

Microsoft SharePoint, while useful for sharing files, is simply cloud storage and shouldn’t be used as a means of backing up your systems. Microsoft themselves recommend that you should obtain a third-party backup for its services, as they don’t back them up. If something was to happen to SharePoint, and you lost the files you had on there, Microsoft are not responsible for it, and you’re left without your files, you’re risking your whole business and job, you have been warned!

Microsoft’s recommendation of sourcing a backup can be found here in their service agreement.
