SolarWinds Breach – Is My City, County, School District at Risk?

Roetzel & Andress

On December 13, 2020 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that a compromise of U.S. government systems was associated with the malicious exploit of the IT service management tool SolarWinds Orion. The announcement was made public in DHS Emergency Directive 21-01 and can be reviewed directly by the public here.

SolarWinds has taken action and responded on December 14, 2020, with a Security Advisory for recommended risk mitigation steps, posted here. SolarWinds also announced that it would make available a “hotfix” security patch for the Orion platform, which it has.
