We’re learning more about wide-ranging intrusions into government and private sector computer systems that are linked to software from Austin-based SolarWinds. In December, news broke that systems at the Defense, Commerce and Treasury Departments, and others, had been breached and that U.S. officials believe Russian government actors are responsible.
Tech expert Omar Gallaga told Texas Standard that officials continue to learn more about the hack and find more vulnerabilities in U.S. systems.
“What we’re hearing now is that there was a whole other set of bad players, including China, that were involved in a widespread campaign that goes way beyond this SolarWinds hack,” Gallaga said.

– What the Biden administration has said and done about the hack
– What kinds of software have been exploited, beyond that of SolarWinds
– What risks organizations continue to face from the breach
