Microsoft confirms it found compromised SolarWinds code in its systems


“Like other SolarWinds customers, we have been actively looking for indicators of this actor and can confirm that we detected malicious SolarWinds binaries in our environment, which we isolated and removed. We have not found evidence of access to production services or customer data. Our investigations, which are ongoing, have found absolutely no indications that our systems were used to attack others.”

Prior to issuing the statement Microsoft president Brad Smith wrote a long post about “the need for a strong and global cybersecurity response,” and said his company is working with more than 40 customers “that the attackers targeted more precisely and compromised through additional and sophisticated measures.” His focus appears to be on the incoming presidential administration, and what he considers necessary to deal with the threat of nation-state attacks on computer systems.
