Hackers were able to exploit a vulnerability in a web application and use an SQL injection.  The breach occurred in July of 2012, however the server was shut down until January of 2013. Hackers then used Bit9's systems to attack other organizations who relied on Bit9 as a security platform vendor.  Three unnamed companies were affected.  The vulnerability was caused by Bit9 failing to install its own security software.
