While we’re on the security beat, insurance company Geico suffered a breach – that lasted more than a month. The company filed with the attorney general of California in a data breach notice. The breach exposed customer’s driver’s licenses.
Hundreds of networks have been hacked in a breach of Codecov, an online software testing platform. The company suffered a supply-chain attack that went undetected for over 2-months. The attackers silently collected customer’s credentials.
Why do we care?
Codecov is a huge breach too — right at the supply chain. Geico is likely the one to get the coverage… and likely with no real consequences. Will they suffer long term? I highly doubt it.
I paired these two to show the difference in the way coverage happens. Codecov SHOULD get more coverage, but Geico will get the headline.
