According to Reuters, “Investigator Codecov found that the April attack was much more widespread than originally thought.” The company’s security breach has affected more than 29,000 customers. The attackers gained access to Codecov’s network through a compromised customer account. From there, they were able to view and alter the code of some of the world’s biggest companies. The investigation is still ongoing, but Codecov has already taken steps to secure its systems and is working with law enforcement. investigators codecov 29k aprilsatterreuters

The investigators, who are working with the FBI, have been looking at a hacking tool known as Codecov that was used to gain access to sensitive information. The tool is believed to have been used in an attack on the U.S. Treasury Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
According to Reuters, “Investigators are looking into Codecov, a company that provides software to help developers avoid coding errors, after it said hackers gained access to its computer network and may have tampered with its products.” This is a developing story, and more details are sure to emerge in the coming days.
