The statement https://www.solarwinds.com/trust-center/security-advisories/cve-2021-35211, issued over the weekend, did not identify the hackers involved.
In a question-and-answer page appended to the statement, SolarWinds said the flaw was “completely unrelated” to last year’s hack of government networks by alleged Russian spies, a sprawling espionage operation that used the Texas-based software company as a springboard to break into target networks.
Microsoft declined to comment.
