Tradecraft Tuesday
Episode 17: Orion Malware, MSP Targeting & 2021 Predictions

Nobody expected cybercriminals to take a vacation for the last few weeks of 2020; but it sure would’ve been nice to catch a quick break. Instead, we learned about SUNBURST—malware that was used in the successful supply chain attack on Solarwinds’ Orion products.

In our first Tradecraft Tuesday of the year, we’ll unpack this attack in more detail and highlight some of the coverage, conversation and more sophisticated technical aspects of this incident—including:

- How the attackers’ source code was hidden in plain sight
- Why attacking the Orion software build system helped minimize detection
- Their ability to granularly target and exclude specific victims

We’ll also look ahead and outline some of the threats and activity we’re expecting to see more of throughout 2021.
