Poly Systems – Solar Winds Impact

Vulnerability Summary

In response to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) alert AA20-352A, Plantronics, Inc. (“Poly”) launched an investigation to determine if any Poly systems were vulnerable. Poly verified an instance of the vulnerable SolarWinds Orion product running in the Poly environment. The systems running the vulnerable software were immediately shut down and disconnected from the network.  

Following the guidance provided by SolarWinds and the U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Poly Security Office and IT teams moved quickly to address the issue. The vulnerable software was patched, and related systems have been rebuilt. 

The teams reviewed audit logs and other security systems for Domain indicators of compromise IOCs, Hashes, Threat Triggers and EUBA for other IOCs documented for this vulnerability. These investigations did not uncover any signs of malicious activity or indicators of compromise and there are no other indications that machines used by Poly were targeted.
