A federal court in Texas gave the FBI the go-ahead to remove malware from on-premises Microsoft Exchange servers at organizations infected in a wave of voluminous zero-day attacks earlier this year, the Department of Justice said on Tuesday. Since Friday, the FBI has been removing web shells, or scripts that allow remote access, from Exchange servers belonging to organizations in at least eight states, according to an unsealed application for a search warrant released by the DOJ. The operation is authorized to run through April 23.
