Don’t Panic Too Much, They’re Surely Insured. Successfully Sue Bill, or George or Mike or Whoever?

If you’re a SolarWinds customer, assume compromise and immediately activate your incident response team.

However, if you’re a SolarWinds customer, and they are your active security and incident response team and they have failed to protect servering of your crown jewels, with their value now decimated/reduced to single figure cents on the dollars, what else can you do other than panic a lot and hope they have a case to answer and you can still afford to sue them for whatever can be conjured up and thrown at them?

After all, is that not the American Way and the normal route to get to the root of such that matters?

Hello Ms Goose, Meet Mr Gander

The hack was carried out by a hacking crew thought to be APT29, aka Cozy Bear, a crew of miscreants linked to Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, though no firm evidence has yet been put forward publicly.

Here’s pretty current news of wannabe UK miscreants …… https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/nov/19/uk-unveils-national-cyber-force-of-hackers-to-target-foes-digitally ….. which be all accounts is something to be lauded and applauded.

It’s a funny old world and that’s for sure. Not many folk laughing though.
