A Security Update from the HaystackID Chief Information Security Officer

John Wilson, Chief Information Security Officer and President of Forensics, HaystackID

You have likely heard about recent network compromises of Government and Major Business including security vendors. These have been traced to SolarWinds Orion® Products. According to SolarWinds, they were recently a victim of a cyberattack that inserted a vulnerability (SUNBURST) within their Orion Platform software builds for versions 2019.4 HF, 2020.2 with no hotfix installed and 2020.2 HF 1, which, if present and activated, could potentially allow an attacker to compromise the server on which the Orion products run.

HaystackID does not and has never used SolarWinds Orion Products.

As always, our information security team continues to actively monitor this and all relevant reported cyber incidents and attacks to ensure we continue to be prepared to protect data, applications, and networks that ensure privacy, security, and continuity for our clients and their data.

John Wilson
Chief Information Security Officer
