A highly sophisticated supply chain attack has been reported on the
SolarWinds' Orion IT monitoring and management software, resulted in
backdoor remote code execution and may further lead to lateral movement and
SolarWinds Orion Platform software builds have been reported to be part of
a sophisticated manual supply chain attack.
In this sophisticated supply chain attack, adversaries compromised updates
to the SolarWinds' Orion IT monitoring and management software,
specifically a component called 'SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll'
in versions 2019.4 HF 5 through 2020.2.1. The digitally signed updates were
posted on the SolarWinds' website from March to May 2020. This backdoor can
communicate to third party servers using HTTP and is able to execute
commands to transfer and execute files, profile the system, reboot the
machine, and disable system services.
Note: It is reported that exploitation of this vulnerability is in the
Users with Orion Platform v2020.2 with no hotfix or 2020.2 HF 1 need to
upgrade to Orion Platform version 2020.2.1 HF 1.
Users with Orion Platform v2019.4 HF 5 need to update to Orion Platform
version 2019.4 HF 6.
Organisations are strongly advised to take additional measure like:
changing passwords of all accounts accessible to Orion servers
analysing all configuration for network devices managed by the Orion
platform for alteration.
Organisations should consider the impacts and applicability of these steps
on their specific network operations prior to implementing these
