Dominion, Solarwinds, and Barr...


Gateway PunditLast night the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a rare Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a KNOWN COMPROMISE involving SolarWinds Orion products.

This was only the fifth Emergency Directive issued by CISA under the authorities granted by Congress in the Cybersecurity Act of 2015.

CISA reported a breach of the SolarWinds Orion products.

This Emergency Directive called on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

So guess who uses SolarWinds?

Dominion Voting Systems uses SolarWinds products.

This seems likely to be part of the non-public fallout from the forensic audit of the Dominion Voting Systems hardware in Michigan -- the audit that found the systems were compromised to produce an artificially high error rate, where ballot adjudication can be used to steal the election, and that crucial security and audit logs were missing from the systems, suggesting them were compromised and the logs removed.

I wouldn't be surprised if Barr's departure is also related to this -- either because Barr didn't find it or didn't want to follow up on it.

It feels like the dominoes have started to fall.
