How did the Colonial Pipeline Ransomware attack occur?

Hi guys, I have to write a report on a cyber security attack. It doesn’t have to be hugely detailed. I’ve done a decent bit of research and I really find the recent ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline to be quite interesting. From my understanding and readings it appears that the attackers have gained access to Colonials servers by undermining a process involving a person (i.e. email phising or some other mistake by a user). However, I can’t find any sources that detail the breach or vulnerability. Am I right in assuming that they are yet to discover the exact cause of this issue and I’m better off picking another attack to write about?

Thanks in advance.
