  • What does the SolarWinds attack mean to us?

    Posted on January 4th, 2021 at 11:12 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Heard about the SolarWinds attack and how attackers had access to Microsoft’s source code?  Here’s my views on the SolarWinds attack.

    I don’t think it means that attackers can inject things into Windows.  I don’t think it gives them any more information than they probably already had.

    But I think that over time Microsoft will make the Attack Surface Reduction rules to be easier to use to add protection even down to us lowly home and small businesses.

    I currently do not enable these rules on my home computers.  But I’m keeping an eye on them for sure.  And patching my machines, but just not immediately.
