Cyberhack much bigger than already reported


NewsmaxA foreign hack of the U.S. government is even bigger than originally thought, according to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

The Washington Examiner reports the agency shared that the cyber hackers gained secretive backdoor access in more ways than just through the publicly known SolarWinds software update being corrupted.

“One of the initial access vectors for this activity is a supply chain compromise of the following SolarWinds Orion products. CISA has evidence of additional initial access vectors, other than the SolarWinds Orion platform; however, these are still being investigated,” CISA wrote on Thursday, noting that “the SolarWinds Orion supply chain compromise is not the only initial infection vector this advanced persistent threat actor leveraged.”

The magnitude of this as already reported is huge.

The timing -- almost exactly aligned with the forensic audit of Dominion voting systems in Antrim country, which is known to use the Solarwinds product -- is also extremely suspicious.
