News about the HipChat breach that confused me

This morning I got a info about a security breach at Atlassian. To be precise, HipChat. The “HipChat security notice”. The news page I was reading additionally pointed out a security vulnerability in Atlassians confluence. I got a chill in this moment. Somehow I got this wrong. I understood there would be a new vulnerability.

Because of a bad Internet connection I wasn’t able to the entry article(just got the header). So I rushed to shutdown my confluence instances. When a better Internet connection was available I continued to read. It turned out to be an already fixed vulnerability that was not related to the data breach of HipChat.

When you’re going to write an article about a security incidents, don’t point out to the most recent (and already) fixed vulnerability. People gets confused about this…. or at me.
