Austin Software Company at Center of National Security Breach

Bracewell’s David Springer joined “Capital Tonight” and “Good Day Austin” in a pair of separate interviews discussing SolarWinds, the Austin-based software maker, which is at the center of a large data breach targeting government agencies, private companies and critical infrastructure.

In his interview with “Capital Tonight” Springer said, “Whoever did this clearly did their research and has come to understand that SolarWinds Software exists on a wide range of targets all across the private sector and the government.”

The cybersecurity unit of the Department of Homeland Security says it suspects Russian hackers in the attack on the company’s Orion software. The intruders apparently exploited vulnerabilities in the software.
