Among other things, CERT.at reports that Microsoft in particular attracted attention in the second third of 2021: Not only did Microsoft have to deal with the aftermaths of ProxyLogon, an exploit chain for the e-mail server "Microsoft Exchange", but it also was made public that further attack possibilities were discovered with ProxyShell.
