Hard to tell from the article, but it stated that FireEye was investigating a breach in their security when they discovered the SolarWinds issue.Ibanez wrote: ↑Mon May 10, 2021 7:09 amYou referring to SolarWinds? I'm sure FE has mitigated any potential threat that could come from that compromise - or are in the process of creating tools to ID when they're own tech is being used. I've worked with them and go to conferences where they are at - that company is on top of it. They're forward thinking. Maybe these tools are the stolen ones from the NSA - remember that in 2016?
I've been saying it for over 10 years (and repeatedly here) that the Russians are some of the most advanced, sophisticated nation-state sponsored hackers. Our leaders, all of them, going back to Obama have failed to protect us and defend us. Obama, Trump, Republicans and Democrats have utterly failed us. They've spent years practicing the very attacks we're seeing now. It's clear that the Ukraine is no-longer their cyber war proving grounds.
Can't tell if that means FireEye was investigating the SolarWinds issue within their own network or found it looking at a different issue.
But yes, I was thinking about those NSA tools as well.
