SolarWinds reaction as follows:

SolarWinds has recently been made aware that we were victims of a highly sophisticated, manual supply chain attack on SolarWinds® Orion® Platform software builds for versions 2019.4 through 2020.2.1, released between March 2020 and June 2020. We have been advised that this attack was likely conducted by an outside nation state and intended to be a narrow, extremely targeted, and manually executed attack, as opposed to a broad, system-wide attack.

We value the privacy and security of our customers. We strive to implement and maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, security processes, procedures, and standards designed to protect our customers. Immediately upon learning of the incident, SolarWinds retained leading third-party cybersecurity experts who have been working to investigate the incident and develop a remediation plan. Communication to our customers regarding this incident will be made promptly. Additionally, our support organization is preparing to assist customers as we continue to investigate and remediate this incident.
