SolarWinds’ comprehensive products and services are used by more than 300,000 customers worldwide, including military, Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and education institutions. Our customer list includes:

Hackers used SolarWinds' dominance against it in sprawling spy campaign

Cybersecurity experts are still struggling to understand the scope of the damage.

“We don’t think anyone else in the market is really even close in terms of the breadth of coverage we have,” he said. “We manage everyone’s network gear.”

The hackers inserted malicious code into Solarwinds.Orion software updates pushed out to nearly 18,000 customers.

The malicious updates - sent between March and June

We may not know the true impact for many months, if not more – if not ever

The company’s stock has tumbled more than 23%

Security researcher Vinoth Kumar told Reuters that, last year, he alerted the company that anyone could access SolarWinds’ update server by using the password “solarwinds123

"In an effort to save face, Mandia went to some trouble to outline just how good the hackers were and the extraordinary lengths they must have gone to in order to pull down its pants in public, spank it on the bottom, and then run away laughing while FireEye was standing at a lectern telling everyone why they needed to hire the company to protect their networks."

Statement from MS side.

Just to clarify, Frank X Shaw is Corporate Vice President, Corporate Communications at Microsoft Corporation. So a pretty senior executive who usually doesn't talk out of his ass, unlike a certain journalist..

Additional malware discovered

In an interesting turn of events, the investigation of the whole SolarWinds compromise led to the discovery of an additional malware that also affects the SolarWinds Orion product but has been determined to be likely unrelated to this compromise and used by a different threat actor. The malware consists of a small persistence backdoor in the form of a DLL file named App_Web_logoimagehandler.ashx.b6031896.dll, which is programmed to allow remote code execution through SolarWinds web application server when installed in the folder “inetpub\SolarWinds\bin\”. Unlike Solorigate, this malicious DLL does not have a digital signature, which suggests that this may be unrelated to the supply chain compromise.  Nonetheless, the infected DLL contains just one method (named DynamicRun), that can receive a C# script from a web request, compile it on the fly, and execute it.

Awesome practical tricks used.  Funny how non targeted domains were hashed so its computationally difficult to even figure that out.

Also the way it masquerades as seemingly a normal business backend file and protocol was very clever.  If the attackers did not use this vector to install further RATs that would be quite a waste.  Though if the network communication is heavily monitored at these big targets then perhaps this initial discovery would have blown the whole thing anyway.  But at least it should have had backup domains or IPs given that they were quick to go to court and disable it completely by grabbing the domain name

It's weird how resourceful companies and organizations with sensitive data rely on a 3rd-party contractor to provide such software for monitoring their systems.

And the access level those monitoring tools had over these systems, I wonder if it's a full access to every thing on these networks.

But it was epic to see .NET finally being used in a sophisticated attack.

Those big companies are tasting their own poison now, violating the privacy of all humans for years !

Why is it legal when they do it ? no one bats an eye when they spy on users and fu⁠ck us everyday by the name

of improving services or protecting their interests ! now it's named an act of war because they are the victims.
