The provider of information technology products and services said in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulatory filing that it was informed of the intrusion on Jan. 12.


It said it believed the hackers were from Cozy Bear, a unit of Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service. Microsoft reported last week that it also discovered an intrusion of its corporate network on Jan. 12.



The Redmond, Washington, tech giant said the breach began in late November and also blamed Cozy Bear. It said the Russian hackers accessed the accounts of senior Microsoft executives as well as cybersecurity and legal employees.


Cozy Bear was behind the SolarWinds breach and focuses on stealth intelligence-gathering on Western governments, IT service providers, and think tanks in the U.S. and Europe.
