From the article it was a "Accellion file-transfer appliance" that was breeched. I suspect from the rest of the paragraph, Bombardier failed to maintain (apply security updates) or upgrade the appliance.

This is a real problem, I suspect many people install appliances and simply run them until they fail. For example, when was the last time you checked for firmware updates to your home router? I also wonder how many ISP's actually maintain their routers ie. how many people are still running a 10 year old ISP supplied router which hasn't had any over-the-wire updates for some years...
