Re: More of the same
Also, the question you have to ask has anyone placed a payload or have they identified any malware communicating back to "command and control" location.

Someone needs to really look into the problem because I am quite sure this is not the end of it.

"the keys have to be regenerated, patches have to be applied, sometimes, users apply the same key so it is going to be interesting how this all plays out."

Yes unless they have been regenerated already they are still at risk even if patch is applied.

"but the API keys and SSL certificates, now this is some serious stuff,"

I agree with this, passwords are hashed, what about APIs, SSL/TLS as they are more serious.

" data breach did not occur 2017 but only exposed data back to that date."

That is true, accounts since Sept 15th 2017. Most likely they were using different system prior to that, or that is when they started the business. :--))

Re: Similar Exposure for Cap One?
"I wonder if the vulnerability in the Capital One WAF that led to their breach has any cross correlation with this exposure?"

I say, it is a good question to ask, obviously.

data exposured vs hacked

Not clear, this this data exposed by itself or hacked? Or, we are looking at another human mistake?

I read the article in error - data breach did not occur 2017 but only exposed data back to that date.  My apologies.

Re: More of the same
  • On August 20, 2019, we learned from a third party of a data exposure that impacts a subset of customers of our Cloud WAF product who had accounts through September 15, 2017.
  • Elements of our Incapsula customer database through September 15, 2017, were exposed. These included:
    • email addresses
    • hashed and salted passwords

And for a subset of the Incapsula customers through September 15, 2017:
    • API keys
    • customer-provided SSL certificates

 @Reisen1955 - I am inclined to agree with you, but again. I am not so concerned with the passwords and email addresses, but the API keys and SSL certificates, now this is some serious stuff, the keys have to be regenerated, patches have to be applied, sometimes, users apply the same key so it is going to be interesting how this all plays out.

One thing, since this took place in 2017, how do you account for the damage done to customers within the last two years, that could go into the hundreds of millions.
