A section of SolarWinds investors have reportedly sued the software company’s directors, alleging they knew about and failed to monitor the cybersecurity risks to the company ahead of last year’s breach that introduced a vulnerability in the systems of thousands of its downstream customers. 

The massive cyber-espionage effort that tainted the software supply chain via a rigged update to SolarWinds software was discovered back in December 2020. Pinned on state-sponsored Russian hackers, the hack was found to have affected nine federal agencies, in addition to hordes of private-sector companies.
