SolarWinds Orion Code

Hi

I ran Belarc Advisor on my main Windows and the information It produced included this:

"These security updates apply to this computer but are not currently installed (using Advisor definitions version 2021.7.13.9), according to the 07/13/2021 Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary and bulletins from other vendors. Note: Security benchmarks require that Critical and Important severity security updates must be installed.

Hotfix Id Severity Description (click to see security bulletin)
SUNBURST_Backdoor Critical  SolarWinds Orion Code Compromise

"

Anyone know why that item should be there at all?

Dave

Seems odd and a false positive to me, Orion is an enterprise server side bit of software.

I recall reading about the SolarWinds compromise; I'm not familiar with the Orion software though AIUI the server installs an 'agent' on client PCs  - might be worth running something like Malwarebytes for a second opion.

@dvorak @TheRoadCrew 

Thank you both. Malwarebytes shows nothing wrong and Avira always removes anything it doesn't like so I guess that I can just ignore it.
