Your whole team was bewildered and your IT people had no explanation beyond the failures themselves. You noticed the effect on the bottom line and started to call this technology debt. You and your team began to discuss migration to new systems from the legacy systems. The devils advocates pointed out that there was nothing apparently wrong with either the hardware or the software of the legacy systems.
These problems are cybersecurity problems. These problems are symptoms of your network being under attack. Vulnerabilities under active exploit can explain these types of problems. A vulnerability is several lines of computer code that can be exploited by hackers. Hackers use vulnerabilities to gain access to your network and computers. Then they steal data, destroy data, or disable computers.
Software systems that function well during development and during the first year of service do not break suddenly without outside intervention. When multiple computers have software that starts breaking, data that is stolen or destroyed, and systems that are partially or completely disabled, these are symptoms of hacking.
