SolarWinds One Year Later: The Story of an Unauthenticated RCE in the Orion Platform

In June 2021, an application security assessment was performed on the SolarWinds Orion Platform. Most SolarWinds products are based on this platform, hence why any security vulnerabilities identified would affect a large range of products. The outcome of the assessment was the discovery of 4 critical vulnerabilities in the Orion Platform that when used together would result unauthenticated Remote Code Execution and unauthenticated File Read.

After discovering the vulnerabilities, we collaborated with FireEye/Mandiant to responsibly disclose them to the vendor.
