LOTS of folks asked me about the sophistication of these attacks, the response actions I expect will happen, and the always fun attribution. This thread will cover those topics. (cue scary political hacker image) Starting w/the #SUNBURST backdoor, the actor's approach to hiding source code in plain sight was simple/classy. They studied Orion's code and naming conventions to make sure even SolarWinds devs would not take immediate notice. OrionImprovementBusinessLayer does not stand out.

Was just shown the SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll is included in n-Central's Probe installer by @KelvinTegelaar. WindowsProbeSetup.exe is signed by the same certificate. However the DLL backdoored with #SUNBURST is not signed and appears to be a 2014 version. #Looking The unsigned SolarWinds.Orion.Core.BusinessLayer.dll binary from my copy of the Windows probe installer had hash B9CE678F9DAF32C526211EDEA88B5EC104538C75FAD13767EA44309E9F81DBFC. No OrionImprovementBusinessLayer class within this version (comparison screens attached).

EMOTET ANALYSTS: Everyday, our team sees 5-15 clients networks wrecked by Emotet. Cleanup/response can take 3d - 3mo depending on IT department skills, tools, and telemetry. We’re creating a “synchronized” removal capability and could use additional perspective. 1/x We know the core of lateral movement for Emotet, TrickBot, Qakbot, etc. is abusing of elevated creds/tokens, standard local admin passwords, and MS17-010 for poorly maintained networks. With these, payloads are dropped to remote shares via SMB & started via remote services. 2/x
