五名知情人士告诉路透社,疑似中国黑客利用了SolarWinds
Corp去年制造的软件漏洞,入侵美国政府计算机,这标志着美国国会议员们称其为国家安全紧急状态的大规模网络安全漏洞发生了新变化。

2月2日独家报导,两名消息人士透露,(FBI)调查人员最近发现,受影响的机构包括位于美国农业部内的联邦薪资管理机构国家金融中心(National
Finance Center,简称NFC),这使人们担心数千名政府雇员的数据可能遭到泄露。

可疑中国集团利用的软件漏洞,与不久前美国指控俄罗斯政府特工通过劫持SolarWinds公司Orion网络监控软件,导致多达SolarWinds公司18,000名客户数据泄露的案件不是同一事件。

安全研究人员此前曾表示,在俄罗斯黑客滥用SolarWinds软件漏洞进行网攻的同时,第二批黑客也在利用该公司的软件漏洞发动攻击。但先前未报导攻击可能与中国有关,以及美国政府机构受到入侵。

路透社无法确定有多少机构受到疑似黑客行动的损害。消息人士以不愿透露姓名的方式讨论正在进行的调查,他们说,攻击者使用了以前由国家支持的中国网络间谍部署的计算机基础设施和黑客工具。

中国外交部发表声明说,中方坚决反对和打击任何形式的网络攻击和网络盗窃。

SolarWinds said that it knew that a customer was attacked by the second group of hackers, but "no definitive information was found" to show who was responsible for the attack.The company added that the attackers could not access SolarWinds' internal systems, and the company issued an update in December to fix the exploited software bug.

A U.S. Department of Agriculture spokesperson admitted to the data breach, but declined to comment further.The FBI declined to comment.

The four people who investigated the two attacks and the external experts who reviewed the code used by the two groups of hackers said that although the two espionage activities overlap and are directed against the US government, they are separate (actions) and are completely different of.

消息人士表示,涉嫌的俄罗斯黑客深入渗透到SolarWinds网络,并在Orion软件更新中隐藏“后门”,然后将其发送给客户;但可疑的中方集团则是利用Orion代码中一个单独的错误来帮助发动黑客行动。

In December 2020, the media widely reported that hackers used SolarWinds to invade all levels of government and large enterprises in the United States, causing serious threats.US government agencies, including the Department of Defense, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, the Department of Treasury, and the Department of Commerce have all discovered hackers using SolarWinds to invade.

协助美国政府调查的安全分析师向路透社透露,仅在最近几周才发现对SolarWinds客户的第二组攻击,与可疑的中国黑客之间的联系。

Reuters was unable to determine what information the hackers stolen from the National Financial Center or the depth of their penetration into the NFC system.But a former US government official told Reuters that its potential impact could be "enormous."

Former U.S. officials said that NFC is responsible for processing payrolls from multiple government agencies, including those involved in national security, such as the FBI, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Treasury.

The records held by the NFC include the social security numbers, phone numbers and personal email addresses of federal employees, as well as bank information. NFC stated on its website that it "provides services to more than 60 different agencies and provides payroll services to more than XNUMX federal employees."

Reuters reported that a USDA spokesperson said in an email: "The USDA has notified all customers (including individuals and institutions) whose data has been affected."
