"Russia is suspected of having multiple us government agencies including the department of homeland security and the commerce treasury departments. The heck is said to have gone undetected for months the investigation is still underway. And there's a lot we don't know yet but when the smoke clears matter say the breach could amount to one of the most significant national security failures in years or puerto dustin bolts cover cybersecurity and intelligence for the wall street journal and he joins us now to talk more about this destined. Thanks for joining me. Humanity could be here all right. So what do we know about who these hackers are and how they gained access so we are still learning a lot about this hack and how it came to be and who's behind it but what we are hearing so far from our sources in and outside the government is that this is believed to be russia's foreign intelligence service. This is an elite cyber espionage group that has engaged in successful cyber attacks against government agencies in the past most notably they preached the obama administration several years ago including the state department in the white house also in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen election. They were also implicated in hacking the democratic national committee. They are not the group that ultimately was responsible for leaking those emails and sort of interfering in the election. That was a separate russian group but this group had been actually in the dnc systems for a longer amount of time sort of quietly engaging and political espionage so this is a confirmed that it is these russians. These are very very capable. Hackers considered some of the best spies basically in the world when it comes to this type of behavior and what we know about how they gain access to all these agencies so the suspected russian operation involved basically hijacking a routine software update mechanism for this company called solar winds that does network management four tons of government agencies and more than four hundred of the fortune five hundred companies in the us essentially by hijacking this software upgrading mechanism <hes>. The hackers were able to build a backdoor into the networks of targets that they wanted to pursue and over the course of several months. We actually think this dates back to march of this year. According to solar winds and other sources they were able to determine which ones they wanted to go after based on their intelligence directives and burrow into their systems and lie in wait for for weeks or months scanning emails spying on internal communications. And that sort of thing. This is sort of a cybersecurity. Professionals would call a supply chain attack where they're able to compromise something that is used widely by a lot of different customers and then by doing that they can sort of have free rein to go after the victims that are then compromised as a result of that attack. We should note here. That russia has denied responsibility for the attack destined. How big a deal is this breach in relation to what we've seen before. Can you just kind of put this into context for us. This is a very significant breach. The only question is sort of how significant it is and is it going to count eventually when all said and done as one of the worst cyber breaches on record. Someone i spoke to. He told me that on a scale of one to ten in terms of severity. This ranks as a tent and the expectation is that in the coming days and weeks. We're probably going to learn about a lot. More government agencies that were breached as well as potentially any number of private networks ranging from defense contractors to accounting firms to a major major companies and all sorts of industries that would be potentially relevant to the hackers. There's a lot remains to be seen about how significant this is. But this is certainly alarming folks inside the government and around the cyber security community. It is worth noting that by all accounts. This is cyber espionage campaign. This was not something that was destructive. This was not you know. This wasn't a ransomware attack. Where hospital now works. Were being frozen opera. Something and they were unable to access patient data. This wasn't it's like some of the major attacks we've seen in recent years that were attributed to north korea for example that did damage to hundreds of thousands of systems around the world. This does appear to be classic espionage but very very significant espionage that got it and this is the result of hackers exploiting of onery product by a private company that's commonly used by the government among other customers. You know it sounds like every link in the chain has to be secure in order to keep your systems safe. How does the government do that is even possible. That is a question and that is something that a lot of folks and government has spent years trying to focus on and they have not come up with a clear easy solution. The reality is that the federal government uses hundreds or thousands of vendors across all the agencies and it is very difficult to maintain the security across the entire supply chain. It's easy to forget that. Just a few years ago several agencies. We're using ski lab products. Despite widespread concerns that that russia antivirus company could potentially be a security risk. Because i of course you know denied all those allegations but the risks were very well known in the us government but they were still being used widely in several different agencies. And so when you sort of take a step back and you realize there's just tons and tons of vendors being used it is really really difficult to ensure the security of all of them and make sure that they're dealing with all the best practices and protecting their systems as much as they should be but this is the lawmakers in both parties have brought attention to that they've raised concern about. And and this is certainly going to add to the level of scrutiny. Another thing that i think is worth noting solar winds actually listed on its publicly available website. All of its many government clients and a lot of his high profile private sector clients. So if you are a hacker with a foreign government this is sort of a roadmap for you to know that. Hey if i can infiltrate these guys. I'll have the keys to the kingdom for all sorts of folks for example in the nsa nasa all branches of the military again more than four hundred the top five hundred fortune five hundred companies and they were all publicly listed on solar wins website as customers and so it would be very easy to identify them as a top target given the the huge range of customers that they had and you mentioned before that even figuring out the scope of this attack. Something that's gonna take days or weeks maybe months so what happens next. How does the government go about re securing. Its systems that remains to be seen as well there are lawmakers already who are saying that they are very concerned about this and that they hope that the outgoing trump administration takes seriously. But this is coming out. A uniquely vulnerable moment for the federal government given that we have a president elect joe biden set to take office and a little bit more than a month. And so it's not clear how. The trump administration plans to respond or mitigate these issues the department of homeland security's cyber wing did issue an emergency directive telling all civilian agencies to immediately uninstall the software from their systems. But that alone won't necessarily fix the problem because the hackers already and getting rid of that software doesn't necessarily in the fight certainly. This is something that folks are concerned about the administration and it's going to be a top concern for the incoming biden administration. I mean imagine a world which now seems that we're in where the administration is taking office shortly after. Several of the federal agencies have been ransacked by a hostile power. It looks like that's what's happening and it seems like that's going to be a serious issue that the biden administration is going to have to deal with wants to take office on january twentieth. And i just want to widen out for a second here. You cover cybersecurity intelligence forest and it has been a really busy year for your beat. It seems like every week practically. We're learning about new breaches. Why is that because twenty twenty has just been one heck of a year. I mean the reality is. There's a lot of added vulnerabilities given the pandemic right. So people are working from home meaning that they're relying more on technology than ever before that is allowed. Hackers to have added opportunities to mess with businesses. Hospitals have been obviously stressed under the pandemic meaning. That ransomware attacks on on their systems are more urgent than ever. And at the same time. You have a lot of foreign governments and others who are very interested in stealing vaccine research and so when you add all those things together. In addition to the fact that there was an election in which they're were heightened concerns about four interference. There was just sort of a lot of things happening in the world that made us more vulnerable and more at risk for cybersecurity episodes. And what you're seeing right now could have happened regardless of the pandemic but the reality is that i think twenty twenty showed us. Just how reliant. We are technology and how we need to be ever vigilant dealing with those threats.

"The orion network management platform as a network management platform called orion from a company called solar winds has led to attacks on fire. The fire i attack. We talked about last week. Microsoft and several us government agencies. Solar wind said sunday that updates to its orion platform that happened between march and june may have carried malware as a result of a sophisticated nation states supply chain attack. Solar winds says microsoft noted. It noted it notified it of a compromise to solar winds office. Three sixty five accounts. It's not sure if that's how the supply chain attack was carried out but it's investigating. Solar winds did call for all orion customers to update to its latest version immediately. That'll partially mitigate this and it plans an additional patch tuesday to fully defend against it. So they're wins has three hundred thousand customers. Worldwide including most of the fortune five hundred companies in the us lockheed martin booz allen hamilton pricewaterhouse coopers. The federal reserve the defense department the state department the. Us secret service. The national security administration. Thirty three thousand of those customers use the orion platforms not all three hundred thousand but a large number and solar winds believes that eighteen thousand of them installed. The malware infected versions. Now not all thousand were targeted but even a small percentage. That's a lot of targets cd. Net reports that administrators are finding signs of the malware on their orion systems. But few are reporting. The second stage payload that would be used to elevate access so it's believed the attackers targeted specific customers around the world fire. I for example announced. The intrusion in its network reported last week was caused by the solar winds breach. It has published detection rules on. Get hub That you can access if you need them. Microsoft confirmed the solar winds compromising security alert to its customers and provided countermeasures including detection. Rules added to defend her The us cybersecurity and infrastructure agency or cc issued an emergency directive instructions on how all federal civilian agencies can detect an analyze compromise systems and advise them to shut down. Orion's he said vises. All hosts monitored by ryan to be treated as compromised until you're certain otherwise fireeye calls the malware sunburst if you're out there looking around uc sunburst. That's what that refers to although microsoft has dubbed it salora gate so we we have a couple of different ways to refer to it. The attack worked by entering the network through the orion vulnerability however it got in there and then gaining elevated credentials once it was in your network that let attackers ford. Single sign on tokens which would let them impersonate privileged accounts which allow them to grant new credentials to themselves and gain high level access. The attackers were able to track authentication controls and access office three sixty five at the national telecommunications and information administration. We're definitely monitored emails. It probably did that in other places as well fire. I says that each attempted intrusion needed what they called meticulous planning and manual interaction. This wasn't a set it and forget it blast. This was done intentionally to the targets. It affected fire. I says the victims have included government consulting technology telecom and extractive entities north america europe asia and the middle east. So it's not just the us government we anticipated. There are additional victims and other countries in verticals says fire fireeye and yeah the. Us government appears to be one of them. Reuters sources saying that network intruders accessed internal email traffic of the us department of treasury and commerce and possibly other agencies. The us commerce department confirmed a breach and said that cease and the fbi are investigating and the national security council reportedly met on saturday to discuss this issue. So this is big. It affects a lot of companies. It affects a lotta governments. It affects highly sensitive information. It seems to be meant to gather intelligence by going after the communications but let let's start with the way it got there. The supply chain attack. Can you explain to us. What a supply chain attack is so this is one of these attacks there as the us. Government has been screaming. China china china for the past few years. The fear has been that. The chinese government could infiltrate one of our manufacturers or suppliers based in the us Sorry based in china via the supply chain so they can slipstream or put software or hardware compromised hardware into the unit before or during the manufacturing or shipping of if we remember the whole super micro thing from a couple of years ago this would be equivalent to that but just on a much more massive scale. This was done via software so the things that we inherently trust and not just enterprise it but consumer it. The update process that automated process to say. You know what i My program says time to be updated. I'm going to hit the update button. And i trust from the point. This solar winds is Distributing the to the point that my pc gets it that i trust that update. It is equivalent to apple or microsoft or any other. Trust at enterprise company or consumer company. You ask you for update and getting malware instead and i assume that solar winds like any other company has methods in place to try to prevent this from happening. What what are the possibilities that failed. This is This is quite frankly. Scary solar winds is a proper enterprise. It company three hundred thousand customers of four hundred and twenty five of the top five hundred the their their government customer sold their code is getting audited they go through all the rigors of this place so much sold that i've read the one of the reasons why it wasn't detected was because solar wind specifically requested that you not scan is directories for malware viruses. Because is so trusted. Sold the what's scary about the heck. I i've worked enterprise. It for over twenty years and one of the things that we do an enterprise it for a product like solar winds or ryan which basically you know checks other systems is the email server is the database. Server is the services running on that up. If it's not up we'll lert administrator there so trusted that we get exceptions for that security skiing and we're confident that solar winds from a security perspective can be absorbed from securities. Can't so this is. This is about as bad as it gets. I mean seems like a juicy target for someone to go after. It takes very sophisticated attack. That do it though right. It takes a super sophisticated attack and then to jump off fireeye. If you're not familiar with it basically. I have to implement this when i worked for department of housing and urban development as a Federal contractor basically is the key so keen on it. It sits on the edge of the network and field goals through all the traffic leaving these agencies. You cannot get an exception of you have a network connection..

"Their job is to reflect the democratic vote of people in their states. Ah majority is set to elected Joe Biden despite President Trump's weeks of efforts to subvert democracy. Courts rejected dozens of baseless lawsuits to overturn the vote. President Trump and most House Republicans signed onto a suit asking the Supreme Court to intervene, but the court declined to interfere with today's electoral college vote. Even Amy Cockney Barrett, the justice Trump explicitly appointed to rule on his re election. Found no reason to hear the spurious case. NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith is covering the story, Tam Good morning. Good morning. How does it work today? This happens every four years, but normally we barely pay attention. That's correct. There are 538 members of the Electoral College. They will meet mostly in state capitals. Thies electors are chosen by state political parties, and they're really just there to take the popular vote tallies in their states and make them official s O. This process will happen all over the country. At the end of it, Joe Biden will have more than 270 electoral votes needed to become president. But there is always one more step, and Congress meets on January 6th in a joint session to count these votes. Yeah, that happened four years ago, I was watching the video. The vice president is presiding in Congress is they affirmed the election of Donald Trump in the person doing it then was Vice President Joe Biden. This time around of Joe Biden becomes president and the president elect gives a prime time address tonight. What might he say so his his transition team is saying that he will speak on the electoral vote of sort of certification. And quote the strength and resiliency of our democracy. So that hints it where he's headed. The transition held a press briefing yesterday and campaign manager turned future. Deputy Chief of Staff Gen. O'Malley Dillon said that This will just be the latest instance of Biden winning this election. Electors will vote in a process determined by their own states throughout the day, and it will clearly reinforce exactly what's been true for weeks and weeks and weeks. And what stood out to me about this call yesterday was that the Biden team felt like they needed to hold a whole press briefing to talk about how he won all the ways that he won just to sort of re infected. We reinforce the fact that he won as President Trump continues to deny the result on Gui should note. The president went on Fox yesterday to say he is going to fight on, although his side has given no evidence and dozens of Lawsuits and the president continues to tweet, conspiracy theories and lies. That's what he's got. That's what his case is, But I want to note Tamra this, spurring this lawsuit that was rejected by the Supreme Court. Well over 100. House Republicans supported this effort to do away with democracy and just make Trump president for four more years. What does that say about the president's party now? It's not clear how much of that was performative like they knew that this was going to fail. So why not just to show support for the president and how much of it was a genuine effort by members of Congress? Rich overturn the results of a free and fair election that also elected many of them, But you know Biden's teams we should note every single one of them was elected in that, But anyway, go on. Go on, please. Yeah, And you know, the president know just keeps moving the goal posts of and many members of Congress had said well after the electoral College votes well, now he's saying after those votes are counted in January. Hammer. Thanks for the update. You're welcome. That's NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Okay. U. S cyber security officials were braced for Russian interference ahead of last month's election. But they said that kind of attack never came. Instead, it looks like Russia was busy elsewhere. It was apparently hacking US government agencies. Not directly involved in the election. Wow. For more. We're joined by NPR national security correspondent Greg Marie Greg. Good morning. Good morning, Steve. I guess we should note. This is hacking. It's covert activity. We may not have all the information but what is not Well, the leading suspect is the Russian foreign Intelligence Service, the SVR. It's the Russian equivalent of the CIA, and it seems that minimum they've penetrated computers at the Treasury Department and the Commerce Department. This is apparently been going on for months, and it was only recently uncovered by U. S authorities, Askew noted. We don't have many details, but the Department of Homeland Security has acknowledged the breach. And it says they're working closely with agency partners regarding what they call this recently discovered activity on government networks. What information did the hackers get? Well, the government is maybe In that kind of damage assessment Right now, the email systems were hacked course that raises the questions. What was this just routine office email. Or was it more important classified information? And while we're hearing about the Treasury Department in Commerce Department's initially being happy There are certainly concerns that it could have spread much more widely to other government departments and agencies. Any idea why treasury and commerce would be and would be targeted by a foreign actor? Well, we don't know precisely mean obviously they would have valuable business and financial information, but it's also quite possible. This was simply how the hackers found a way into the government networks. And there is certainly every expectation that other parts of the government would be be targeted as well. The last major Government hack. A perhaps of this scale was back in 2014 2015 and the Russians were responsible for that as well and that included hacking unclassified parts of the White House and the State Department and we'll repeat again. We don't know if this is classified or unclassified information that we're dealing with the Treasury and commerce this time around, But Greg This is not the only news of suspected Russian hacking in recent days. Is this. It all connected to an earlier report of hacking? It may be, and in that earlier report just came out last week from a top U. S cyber security firm Fireeye. It said some of its most valuable tools were stolen in an extremely sophisticated hack something they said they'd never seen before. These are tools that the company uses to check the networks of its clients, which include the U. S government Fire. I said it believed it was a state sponsored attack and they didn't name Russia, but that was clearly the implication. And, yes, Investigators are looking for a connection between that hack and this latest 11 possibilities. They were carried out through software updates that are widely used by government and private companies, certainly points to the fact that Russia is going after.
