Hey everyone,

This is mostly a minimal issue, although all my newsfeeds were dominated this week by the Solarwinds hack anyway :-/

To my more recent subscribers: something went wrong with the signup process while I was on paternity break, causing you to miss last week's issue when I restarted. My apoligies, you can catch up on that one here.

Breaches and leaks

  • The Solarwinds hack definitely falls under this category, but without a doubt deserves an item all of its own.
  • Ledger, the crypto hardware wallet, had a breach of its e-commerce system last July. That database has now been put online for everyone to see, and it includes 1 million e-mail addresses and about 270.000 addresses of customers, even though Ledger at the time said it was only 9500: link.
