2. Orion Vulnerability Might Affect Nearly 18K Customers

SolarWinds communicated Sunday with the approximately 33,000 Orion product customers that were active maintenance customers since March, and believes the actual number of customers that may have had an installation of the Orion products that contained this vulnerability to be fewer than 18,000, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Monday morning.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, total revenue from the Orion products across all customers, including those with a vulnerability, was approximately $343 million, or approximately 45% of total revenue. SolarWinds is still investigating whether, and to what extent, a vulnerability in the Orion products was successfully exploited in the reported attacks against U.S. government agencies.

SolarWinds is aware of an attack vector that was used to compromise the company’s Microsoft Office 365 emails that may have provided access to other data contained in the company’s office productivity tools. SolarWinds said it’s investigating with Microsoft if any customer, personnel or other data was exfiltrated as a result of this compromise, but hasn’t uncovered any evidence at this time of exfiltration.
