State of (in)security - Week 41
Take action: Don't try to advertise a vulnerability finding as a big deal ahead of an advisory. After several massively exploited 10/10 vulnerabilities in the last months, pumping up the public for a critical advisory is counterproductive. Deliver a clear and easy to consume advisory, with clear impact assessment and research.
There were a total of 1,112,330 impacted individuals across 8 incidents, with the largest breach being the French gaming platform Shadow reports data breach of customer data incident exposing 530,000 individuals. Since not all incidents report a number of impacted individuals, the real number is definitely higher than that.
