So much remains unknown about what is now being called the Sunburst hack, the cyberattack against U.S. government agencies and corporations. U.S. officials widely believe that Russian state-sponsored hackers are responsible. The attack gave the perpetrators access to numerous key American business and government organizations. The immediate effects will be difficult to judge, and complete accounting of the damage is unlikely. However, the nature of the affected organizations alone makes it clear that this is perhaps the most consequential cyberattack against the U.S. to date. The SolarWinds breach is a case study in how attackers can subvert a widely used piece of software to turn it to their advantage. In this discussion, we aim to cover how it happened, how the perpetrators did it, and what can be done to prevent incidents like this from happening again.
