From Reuters: Hackers used SolarWinds’ dominance against it in sprawling spy campaign 

by | Dec 22, 2020 | News

You may have heard about the Solar Winds breach that has resulted in government systems being compromised. While Solar Winds does offer services to managed IT server providers, we don’t use their services at all. We are not a customer of Solar Winds. 

The Solar Winds software service that was comprimised is called Orion. It’s very expensive and not intended for small service providers.

While Solar Winds claims security is a high priority, this article notes that up until at least last year, Solar Winds’ update server was accessible using the password “solarwinds123.”
