About our SolarWinds news
Latest news on SolarWinds, a US-based software company that provides IT management tools to organisations around the world. In December 2020, the company became the centre of a major cybersecurity incident, known as the SolarWinds cyberattack.
The SolarWinds cyberattack involved a supply chain attack, in which hackers were able to compromise SolarWinds' software and use it to gain access to the networks of several US government agencies and other organisations. The attackers were able to remain undetected for several months, and it is estimated that as many as 18,000 organisations worldwide may have been affected.
The SolarWinds cyberattack is considered to be one of the most significant cyber incidents in history, and its impact is still being investigated. The US government has attributed the attack to Russian state-sponsored hackers, although Russia has denied involvement.
