Threat Advisory: SolarWinds supply chain attack

Cisco Talos is monitoring yesterday’s announcements by FireEye and Microsoft that a likely state-sponsored actor compromised potentially thousands of high-value government and private organizations around the world via the SolarWinds Orion product. FireEye reported on Dec. 8 that it had been compromised in a sophisticated attack in which state-sponsored actors stole sensitive red team tools. Upon investigating the breach further, FireEye and Microsoft discovered that the adversary gained access to victims’ networks via trojanized updates to SolarWinds’ Orion software.
