SolarWinds hackers targets NASA's Federal Aviation Administration

SolarWinds hackers infiltrated NASA networks and the Federal Aviation Administration as part of a major espionage campaign against US government agencies and private companies.

The two agencies are called the Washington Post. A NASA spokesman did not doubt the report but declined to comment, saying the investigation would continue.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration are believed to be the only two unnamed bodies of the nine government agencies that were confirmed infiltrated in the attack.

The other seven divisions include the Department of Commerce, the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Treasury and the National Institutes of Health, although the attackers did not appear to infiltrate any clandestine networks.

FireEye, Microsoft, and Malwarebytes are among the many network security companies that have been hacked as well.

There are reports that the Biden government is preparing to impose sanctions on Russia, largely due to piracy.

Last year, FireEye issued a hacking alert after its private network was compromised, and these attacks were later discovered.

Among the victims were all clients of the American software company SolarWinds, whose federal tools were used and corporate network management.

The hacker hacked into SolarWinds' network, implanted a backdoor into their software, and sent the backdoor into the customer's network via software updates.

It is also said that the SolarWinds hackers not only break into other devices by attacking the victim's network, they also target other companies in order to penetrate the networks of other customers.

Last week, Anne Neuberger (Ann Neuberger), the former director of cybersecurity at the National Security Agency, is currently the deputy national security advisor for the Biden government.

Representatives of the companies involved in a hearing of the US Senate Intelligence Committee said: The true extent of the violation is not yet known, because the law does not require most victims to disclose the attack unless it contains sensitive personal information.

According to Microsoft, its researchers believe that at least 1,000 professional engineers have invaded SolarWinds.
