In our ongoing communications and work with our customers and third-party public and private partners, we have been able to collect malware samples and, in some cases, related network traffic specific to these vulnerabilities and collaborate with these organizations to share our analysis and advised recommended actions with our customers and the global cyber ecosystem.
