According to the data breach probe, 5.1 million records were taken from the codecov database belonging to the Investigators codecov.
After the security breach
April has been tasked with investigating a system breach that was discovered on March 29th, 29k.
The investigation revealed that the data theft and subsequent demand for payment occurred on April 29 and were communicated to Hacking Team’s system administrators through email. The email included a link to a Dropbox account, which was where the thieves were storing the stolen information. After receiving this email, the security staff at Hacking Team began searching for signs of an assault. April was contacted as well, but she was reportedly out of town.
There was no evidence of a breach in the Hacking Team’s networks, according to our security specialists who evaluated the stolen data. However, it seems that April had been tricked into giving up her login information, which was then used to view her own mailbox. We believe April’s computer was compromised because a hacker sent her an email with a virus-infected file or link (or lured her to a phishing website).

Reuters’ April Satter Releases New Investigative Report
On April 23, 2021, Reuters published the results of their investigation into the incident.
They cited sources within Codecov’s internal security team who claimed that the attacker “had acquired full access to some elements of [Codecov’s] computer infrastructure for more than three months” and could have potentially accessed “substantial volumes of sensitive data” or “inserted harmful code” without being spotted.
Moreover, they claimed that Codecov has found other attack paths, which are now being investigated by security teams at Codecov and the third-party services with whom they work (such as cloud hosting providers).
Effect on Clients
Several of Codecov’s customers are worried because they rely on the company’s automated code review and testing services before releasing new software versions into production.
Companies like IBM and Atlassian immediately notified their users of the breach and the steps they were taking to fix it (e.g., reviewing credentials associated with their accounts).
As a result of this incident, government agencies including NASA are reportedly reviewing any contracts now in place with Codecov and have temporarily halted signing any new ones until further notice.
