About the Lawsuit
SolarWinds and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On December 13, 2020, Reuters reported that hackers purportedly working for the Russian government had exploited the Company's monitoring software to access email traffic at the U.S. Treasury and Commerce departments. On December 14, 2020, the Company disclosed that it had "been made aware of a cyberattack that inserted a vulnerability within its Orion monitoring products" and that "the vulnerability was inserted within the Orion products and existed in updates released between March and June 2020" and that it was cooperating with federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies. On this news, the Company's shares fell $3.93 per share, or 17%, to close at $19.62 per share on December 14, 2020.
On December 15, 2020, Reuters reported that security research sources revealed that the Company had been made aware of the vulnerabilities the prior year and that even after being aware that their software had been compromised, the malicious updates were still available for download. On this news, the Company's shares fell $1.56 per share or 8% to close at $18.06 per share on December 15, 2020. On December 17, 2020, news outlets reported that at least three state governments had been hacked as part of the SolarWinds breach as well as government networks that implicated national security concerns. On this news, the Company's shares fell by more than 19%, from $17.60 per share to $14.18 per share.
The first-filed case is Bremer v. Solarwinds Corporation, et al., 21-cv-2.
