Adam Levin’s blog says that the Solar Wind breach is worst thought

According to one of my follower’s blog, Adam Levin tweeted an article to his blog indicating that this is worst than initially thought. As I predicted, we wouldn’t hear the end of this, and I believe this article is a case of that. Dated December 18th, and found after my multi article blog post on the subject found here we definitely know that this article is the latest.

While initial reports had confirmed the breach of email systems belonging to the U.S. Departments of Treasury and Commerce, the list of affected entities
now includes the Department of Homeland Security (under whose jurisdiction CISA operates), the Pentagon, the Postal Service, the National Institutes of
Health, The Department of Energy, and the National Nuclear Security Administration.

We knew the Neuclear Administration was hit thanks to this article linked within the prior post. This article says in part:

“This APT actor has demonstrated patience, operational security, and complex tradecraft in these intrusions,” said the CISA in a public alert released
December 17. “CISA expects that removing this threat actor from compromised environments will be highly complex and challenging for organizations.”
The CISA went on to specify that “SolarWinds Orion supply chain compromise is not the only initial infection vector this APT actor leveraged.”
The CISA warned that the threat actors behind the breaches utilized several advanced hacking methodologies including steganographic hacking, user impersonation,
“impossible” logins and tokens, and still other sophisticated penetration methodologies.

If this is the case, we really still have a long way to go, and for podcast sake, I am not going to record files on everything I read on the subject. I’ll continue to provide updates and analysis and even commentary where I can, as this is still a breaking story. We’re still learning more every day about this very sophistocated attack which was definitely planned for months.
