UNC2452, the threat actor behind the SolarWinds SUNBURST supply chain attack, is one of the most advanced, disciplined, and elusive threat actors Mandiant has ever investigated. UNC2452’s operators have a mastery of both offensive and defensive skills – and have used that knowledge to refine their intrusion techniques to hide in plain sight. They’ve compromised dozens of organizations in the government, NGO, technology, security, telecommunications, and education sectors. They leverage several attack vectors to obtain access to victim environments and use creative and clandestine techniques to maintain persistent access. We will discuss their tradecraft observed in several victim environments and discuss ways organizations can better defend their networks from this threat actor and the other actors that will emulate UNC2452 in the future.
