Companies affected include Cisco, Intel, Nvidia, VMware, Deloitte, and Belkin International, in addition to California Department of State Hospitals and Kent State University, the WSJ found. Analysis revealed infected machines at 24 organizations that downloaded infected versions of SolarWinds Orion network management software, which had a backdoor installed in a routine update.

Cisco detected the malicious software on some employee systems and lab systems; so far, it says there is no effect on its products or services. Intel is investigating and has said there is no indication attackers accessed its network. Similarly, the other organizations affected confirm they detected the infected software but there is no indication attackers have exploited it.

The 24 companies identified here mark just a small number of the some 18,000 organizations that may have been affected in the massive supply chain attack, news of which broke last week.
