The SolarWinds Orion platform hack is slowly turning out to be one of the most significant hacks in recent years.
Currently, the SolarWinds security breach has been linked to hacks at US security firm FireEye, the US Treasury Department, and the US Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
The hack is, however, expected to be much, much worse. Forbes reported today that SolarWinds is a major contractor for the US government, with regular customers including the likes of CISA, US Cyber Command, the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs, and many others.
In addition, FireEye, which is investigating the incident as part of its own security breach, said the attackers also compromised targets all over the world, and not just in the US, including governments and private sector companies across several verticals.
Citing industry sources, Reuters reported today that despite a broad install base for the Orion platform, the attackers appear to have focused only on a small number of high-value targets, leaving most Orion customers unaffected.https://www.zdnet.com/article/sec-filings-solarwinds-says-18000-customers-are-impacted-by-recent-hack/
So far everyone is blaming Russia, but wait there's more...Trump just came out that it wasn't Russia. Almost the entire cyber security community believes it was Russia. But not Trump. Guess he is either playing 9000 dimensional chess, is a moron or is still Putin's bitch. https://www.businessinsider.com/solarwinds-software-cybersecurity-breach-trump-russia-china-pompeo-technology-2020-12
