How huge this breech is/was we will never know on our end. Enough to know that it is big. Worth attention that it is not getting with all of the election news:
Solarwinds related to Obama Clintons China Hong Kong election process:
The Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) also dispatched a warning, and further reporting on the issue pointed out the intrusion itself took place in May of 2020 and the malware was constructed to disguise itself within the SolarWinds’ system.
A cyber security firm, FireEye, found the intrusion door, identified the source code and tracked it to SolarWinds. FireEye then notified law enforcement and federal agencies who then began reviewing the breach:
WASHINGTON – The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) tonight issued Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a known compromise involving SolarWinds Orion products that are currently being exploited by malicious actors. This Emergency Directive calls on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.
FireEye’s investigation revealed that the hack on itself was part of a global campaign by a highly sophisticated hacker that also targeted “government, consulting, technology, telecom and extractive entities in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East,” the company said in a blog post Sunday night. “We anticipate there are additional victims in other countries and verticals.” (more)
SolarWinds’ has a massive client list including all the sensitive government agencies and most of the top Fortune 500 companies. There have been reports that executives at SolarWinds are being reviewed for making stock transactions prior to public notification of the cyber hack.
