The SolarWinds Orion breach


What happened and what you should do


On December 8, 2020, security specialists announced they had found a breach in the SolarWinds Orion Platform. Many US government agencies and organizations around the world have used this platform to manage their networks, systems and information technology infrastructure.

The breach compromised an element of the SolarWinds Orion Platform software versions 2019.4 HF 5 through 2020.2.1 HF 1, released between March 2020 and June 2020. The breach is a “supply chain breach,” because it targets the clients that have run the platform.
