Microsoft says it has identified over 40 victims of SolarWinds hack


The fallout from the recent major SolarWinds vulnerability continues, with Microsoft confirming that it has notified more than 40 customers in the past week that they have been targeted. The attack made headlines after security firm FireEye announced that its internal network had been hacked using a malware-infected version of the SolarWinds Orion network monitoring tool.

The extent of the security threat posed by the SolarWinds vulnerability is still coming to light but it clearly has global ramifications. Although 80%of the affected customers identified by Microsoft are based in the US, victims have also been located in Canada, Mexico, Belgium, Spain, the UK, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates.
