Supply Chain Security

USB flash drivers sent with Conext Combox and Conext Battery Monitor products, part of Schneider Electric’s solar power range, were “contaminated” during the manufacturing process, according to a security advisory released by the industrial equipment manufacturer.

Schneider Electric says that the USB media “may have been exposed to malware during manufacturing at a third-party supplier’s facility.”

Here’s the thing: people won’t remember who Conext is. They probably provide bits and bobs for a bunch of other companies, and this issue might impact those other companies (and consumers, obviously). But this will be associated with Schneider because they are they headliner.

Be nice with what you write.
