A recent study claims that the US SolarWinds JetBrains YorkTimes was the target of a significant cyber assault. The assault is thought to have begun in Russia, and it was carried out by hackers who gained access to SolarWinds’ networks. This is not the first time the United States has been targeted by Russian hackers, and it is unlikely to be the last.
SolarWinds produces software that aids in the management of massive networks and is used by hundreds of thousands of businesses globally.

The United States accused Russia in December 2020 of organizing a large cyberattack on US corporations and governmental agencies using hacked software from SolarWinds, a Texas-based company. The Kremlin has denied any participation in the breach, which is said to have impacted at least nine federal institutions and over 100 private enterprises.
The New York Times released an article on the state of cybersecurity in the United States in the aftermath of the SolarWinds and JetBrains hacks. The article highlights the many methods through which hackers have exploited weaknesses in American businesses and institutions. It also depicts the present cybersecurity landscape, which is frequently viewed as insufficient in the face of ever-increasing threats.
