Biden administration to respond in weeks to SolarWinds hackers-senior official

WASHINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) - Most of the nine federal government agencies compromised by the massive SolarWinds hack have completed an independent review and those that have not will finish it by the end of March, a senior administration official said.

The hacking, which also hurt 100 private companies, used corrupted SolarWinds code and weaknesses in Microsoft identity-management tools. Officials said they would respond to the perpetrators directly within “weeks, not months.” (Reporting by Alexandra Alper, Nandita Bose and Joseph Menn; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
